What you need to know:

  • Philip Ochieng may not have earned a university degree academic, but his writing spoke of a talented man in the language
  • He had a restless spirit that saw him move from one foreign university to another.

My first encounter with Philip Ochieng was when I joined the Nation Media Group as a correspondent in 2002.
