Biography of Redscar McOdindo K'Oyuga
Redscar McOdindo K’Oyuga is a social entrepreneur, an elusive medical student, a winner of Fern Poetry Prize, a blogger, a chaser of dreams, and a lover. He writes in both Swahili and English. His poems have been published in local newspapers, blogs and literary journals. His poems are also published in BREAKING SILENCE, a world-wide poetry anthology edited by Mwamba Jagedo (James Myer) of Ghana. Deep within the pockets of Nairobi, he lives a humble life in the company of books of varied genres. It is during his numerous local expeditions, and tour through books, or just in stillness of time, the gusty winds of the Savanna in his face, that the old poem coalesces, the unlikely story
comes, the muse takes shape.
