Kenya's first Attorney General turns 100; The Life and Times of Charles Njonjo #TheDukeofKabeteshire

 

Charles Njonjo turns 100 years today. The former hugely feared Attorney General, and later Minister for Home and Constitutional Affairs hardly needs an introduction. His fingerprints are virtually everywhere, on every major legal and political decision and happening in Kenya’s first 23 years of independence.

His influence in the direction that the country took after Uhuru in 1963 began well before independence. He worked then, as a young lawyer, in the colonial State Law Office. His legacy both before and after independence endures. He remains quiet himself, watching from the shadows. Only occasionally does he come out to passively associate himself with one side or the other in national discourses. Kenya's No.1 channel for digital exclusive videos. AUTHORITATIVE. BOLD. ENTERTAINING.
