          Who is George Wajakoyah

Wajakoya was born in Western Kenya in 1961.

His parents later divorced when he was 16 years. After being abandoned by his own parents, he decided to move to Nairobi  Jogoo Road and joined the street boys fraternity at a tender age since it was the only way he could survive.

‚ÄúLife became unbearable‚Ķ We would be beaten by police and city council askari,‚ÄĚ the law scholar stated.¬†

While he was on the streets of Nairobi he met his luck through an accident after he was hit by an overspeeding car.

Education Life

He was detained and severely tortured.

After some Americans helped him get out of custody and flew him out of the country to the UK, he began his life in exile.

He devoted his time to studying law and funded his tuition by digging graves, claiming that his eyes were always red from labor and study alone.


Prof Wajackoyah moved to the United States from the United Kingdom, where he spoke widely on Law and Economics, Human Rights, Comparative Constitutional, and International Law around the country.
