Our Founder

Odindo Opiata

Mr. Opiata was a dedicated human rights defender who was among the pioneers of democracy and human rights in Kenya. Despite enduring political persecution and imprisonment including torture in the infamous Nyayo house for his unwavering beliefs, his spirit remained unbroken.

His dedication led to the founding of Economic and Social Rights Centre-Hakijamii in 2004, a platform through which he consolidated and amplified the voices of the voiceless and championed the course of the oppressed.
