As the first Kenyan inmate to graduate with a Diploma in Law from the University of London, Pete Ouko’s focus during his 18-year stint behind bars for a wrongful conviction, was to fight injustice and work towards having a safer Kenya. It did not come easy though.
He achieved this despite initially being locked up 23 hours a day in a cramped death row cell with only 30 minutes if at all, allowed outside. He had no tutorial support and there were detractors. He even got his books late. But impediments did not make him lose hope.
