About me

I am a lawyer, a brother, a son, a friend, a husband, 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. That on some level, what I do makes life easier for someone and hopefully, eventually, for myself…Probably the best way to describe me is in the words of Winston Churchill, I am a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.

I am the former Program Manager at Pan Africa ILGA, currently living Johannesburg, South Africa. I have also worked as the Executive Director of Gay Kenya Trust, an organization that works towards equality and non-discrimination for all including gay and lesbian individuals in Kenya. As a lawyer, I previously worked as the Legal and Human Rights Officer at the Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya where I was instrumental in designing and initiating the implementation of what was then a strategy towards decriminalization of adult consensual same-sex conduct.

I currently sit on the advisory board of the IDAHOT Committee and I assist organizations in their strategic planning sessions, most recently, the Pan Africa ILGA 2019 – 2022 strategic plan.
