Ory Okolloh

Ory Okolloh, a 35-year-old Harvard graduate and lawyer, is fighting for the democratisation of her country. Her blogs ‘Mzalendo’ and ‘Kenyan Pundit’ were a lone voice in the crisis-torn country during the unrest verging on civil war triggered by manipulated presidential elections in Kenya. As Kenya deteriorated into bloody chaos, Ory developed ‘Ushahidi’, an Internet programme giving a voice to people in desperate circumstances all over the world while at the same time mapping their individual experiences on the world map.
