Professor Micere Githae Mugo

Professor Micere Githae Mugo, a well-known poet from Kenya, died at the age of 80. Her death had been reported by her family on Friday evening.

Leaders in Kenya have sent heartfelt condolences and lauded Professor Micere Githae Mugo for her persistent dedication to social justice, notably Chief Justice Martha Koome.

Prof. Micere has been referred to as a figurehead in the struggle for civil rights and freedom of thought in Kenya and worldwide by Martha Karua, the head of the Narc Kenya party. Additionally, she highlighted Prof. Micere's status as an inspiration to many.

The Professor died after a long battle from cancer.

Willy Mutunga, a former chief justice, praised Prof. Micere for being a genuine champion for human rights.

Additionally, she challenged preconceived conceptions of brilliance when she became the first black student ever accepted into the all-white Limuru Girls High School in 1961.

After leaving Limuru, Professor Micere committed herself to politics and advancing the cause of social justice. She was detained in 1982 following the attempted takeover and compelled to flee the country.

She fled to Zimbabwe, where she proceeded to write on Kenya's societal inequalities and won international acclaim for her writing.

Professor Micere founded the Pan African Community of Central New York, and he co-wrote a play with Professor Ngugi Wa Thiong'o. Her support for social justice and achievements in literature will be remembered for a long time.
