Lethabo Mailula hosts this episode with Jamil Khan, a researcher, PhD Critical Diversities Studies candidate and author of the book Khamr: The Makings of a Waterslams.

I am a lawyer, a brother, a son, a friend, a neighbor, a confidant, a student of life and I am Kenyan. Became a human rights activist so suddenly sometimes I ask myself if this really is something I wanted. But I have come to embrace it. I have come to realize that I like what I do.
