Stronger than Faith

My Journey In the Quest for Justice in Repressive Kenya - 1958-2015

by Oduor Ong'wen

Few events in Kenya's recent history have captured the imagination of the nation as those of the period from the late 1970s. Between the pages of this memoirs is a history of that period which is hardly taught in our schools and is fast receding into the holes of the insignificant as a younger generation takes over. The history of that era, like that of all the eras that have made this country, needs to be preserved by those who witnessed and participated in it. In Stronger Than Faith, Oduor Ong'wen adds clarity to the politics of an important but dark era of our history. It adds clarity to why that era is not entirely gone.

"I came to know Mr. Ong'wen as one of the victims of the repressive era who became a key player in the movement for the Second Liberation of our country. His sole drive is to leave behind a better, more caring and democratic country than the one he grew up in. This book, which I would describe as an essential reading, is just but a chapter in story that is still unfolding"

Raila Odinga, Former Prime Minister of the Republic of Kenya

"This book aptly captures the twists and turns of Kenya's democratic struggles at the centre of which Oduor was"
