In 1998, Peter Ouko was taken to Kamiti Maximum Prison in Kenya and was sentenced to death in 2001. His sentence would later be commuted to life imprisonment by Kenya’s former President Mwai Kibaki in 2009.
Through APP’s Justice Changemaker training programme, Peter was given the opportunity to study law and became the first inmate in Kenya to attain a Diploma in common law.
Peter later won his freedom in October 2016 and continues to support and advocate for those individuals who remain on remand.
Peter recently received a standing ovation at TEDGlobal for his relentless work and efforts to restore hope, justice and dignity to the prison justice system.
Peter now works with APP as an ambassador representing us worldwide.
