Born 1946 into a renowned literary family, he began composing poetry as a teenager. After publishing a political pamphlet questioning the direction in which Jomo Kenyatta was guiding the country, he was imprisoned for three years. Upon his release from prison in 1972 he left Kenya and worked at the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and the BBC‘s Swahili Service in London. He later held academic appointments teaching Swahili at the SOAS at the University of London and, most recently, the University of Leipzig in Germany.
