More information on external website
John Githongo has had a varied career as journalist, civil society activist and most famously Kenya’s anti-corruption tsar. Appointed in 2002 by President Mwai Kibaki John uncovered large-scale corruption up to the highest levels of the administration. After making these revelations John fled Kenya. His controversial story was recounted in Michela Wrong’s book It’s our turn to eat: the story of a Kenyan whistle-blower.
Having now returned to Kenya John heads Inuka, a grassroots advocacy group aimed at creating an informed citizenry. John is a passionate commentator on Kenyan social and political life and he will be joined by a pair of Kenya experts Michela Wrong and Professor Justin Willis (University of Durham).
