Bill Rutto

Agent: agentname
Nairobi, Kenya

I'm a Kenyan writer and human rights researcher with Research for Action Network (REFONET)and a consultant with the Centre for Minority Rights Development (CEMIRIDE). I write both fiction and non-fiction works.

Currently I'm working on a major advocacy book on a community called the Talai who in 1934 were deported en mass by the British colonial authorities in Kenya for political reasons. The community now intends to sue the British government for human rights violations arising from the deportation and the subsequent suffering they have since been subjected to. The book I'm working on is titled The Plgiht of the Talai: A Case of Historical Injustice and Internal Displacement.
