st Andrews in Scotland.
He returned to
colonial Kenya at around 1951 and went into legal practice as
the first Black, and worse, married to a White, Tate Mavis.

Kodhek took to the
defense of Mau Mau freedom fighters and other patriots who ran
foul of colonial law.
So he had no

With a huge
intellect, confron-tational personality, solid education,
perfect mastery of the colonial language, murde-rous humor and
wit, Kodhek ran rings around colonial courts.
