Hi there! Welcome to my site where I share my thoughts and opinion on critical public interest issues from a human rights centered approach. 

 

I currently serve as Executive Director for Amnesty International Kenya. As Amnesty’s spokesperson and chief strategist in Kenya, I lead a team of committed investigative researchers and campaigners working to end human rights abuses and realize the rights and freedoms captured in the Constitution of Kenya.

Over the last 25 years, I have worked and volunteered with some of the most influential international organizations in the world including ActionAid, Equality Now, and Oxfam International. In these capacities, I have advised several African Governments, the African Union, and the G8 among others. I have also voluntarily chaired the Kilimani Project Foundation over the last six years.

I love hosting honest and bold conversations that encourage ethical and empowering citizenship. This is what gets me up early to appear on breakfast media shows and write a weekly column in the Standard newspaper. 

I am currently finalizing a book manuscript on Building Constitutionalism in Kenya and exploring the potential of social entrepreneurship for governance and human rights work.

Get in touch or engage me across any of my social media platforms. Word of caution, I don't entertain cynicism well.
