He was elected to represent the Nyaribari Masaba Constituency in the National Assembly of Kenya in 1997. His tenure lasted until 2002. He was Minister of Education from 2007 to 2012.

On 12 September 2012, Ongeri was among a Kenyan delegation meeting in Mogadishu with newly-elected Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, when two suicide bombers and two gunmen dressed in government uniforms attempted an attack on the Jazeera Hotel where the officials had convened. There were reportedly around 10 casualties, among which were three Somali security detail, one AU peacekeeper, and the assailants themselves. None of the assembled statesmen were harmed. The Al-Shabaab militant group later claimed responsibility for the attacks. (via Freebase)
