Remembering Ken Saro Wiwa Jnr
- He was a writer with a fluid prose and an eye for details. A human-rights activist. An adviser to three presidents in his native Nigeria. And he was also a man whose life and career were marked by the murder of his famous father two decades ago. Ken Wiwa was a successful journalist in his own right who, while in his 20s, was suddenly thrust into the global spotlight after his father, Ken Saro-Wiwa, was jailed and then executed by Nigeria’s military junta for campaigning against oil development.
