"Today I am serving my second term as a Senator of Narok County and tomorrow God will open a new door for me,  Believe in your dreams".

His followers on Twitter congratulated him for his consistency in hard work despite his unrossy past life.

The senator has been former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's die-hard fan despite the challenges he has encountered in supporting the opposition party. On Monday, August 15, 2022, the outspoken lawmaker amongst other  Azimio leaders including Saya Governor James Orengo, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed Jsustained injuries in the chaos that erupted at the national tallying center, moments before the announcement of the presidential results that saw PresidentWilliam Ruto as the Victor.

Ledama and a section of leaders from the Azimio One Kenya coalition had stormed the podium in an attempt to stop Wafula Chebukati, the chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), from declaring the results. They claimed the election had been rigged in favour of Kenya Kwanza Alliance leader William Ruto.

Ledama was later rescued by General Service Unit (GSU) officers deployed to quell the situation.

"I was brutally assaulted by William Ruto supporters most of them elected members of parliament at Bomas of Kenya shouting kill him, kill him. The GSU protected me otherwise I would have been killed," Ledama said in a tweet on Friday.
