I had the great pleasure of being James Muiruri's supervisor during his doctoral studies in the School of Law at the University of Sheffield from 2005. He was an exceptional student who worked hard on his thesis which explored the developing system of African region security. He ventured in the Students Committee, being a resident tutor and mentor to two halls of residence as well as the young Kenyan Community within the University, and legal advisor and supporter of Rachel's Development Programme( his mother's orphanage programme in Kenya)
James loved life and wanted to spend his helping others in particular the people of Kenya, his cherished homeland.
This evening I finished basketball workouts with my son. Ngong is very cold and we prepared a cup of hot black coffee and got talking. I was sharing my Basketball exploits and how I was like John Stockton and my friend James Muiruri aka Jemo was Carl Malone. Together we could not lose. I met James at KSPS and we became good friends. I never got a chance to pass my condolences to the family when I heard of his untimely demise. I passed by the laundry shop at Utalii House a few times where I accompanied James a few times to meet his mother, but I didn't find her. The last communication I got from Jemo was while he was still in UK. He wrote, " I have played Basketball in Uk and I am yet to meet a better joint guard " I jus want whomever reads this to know that Jemo still lives in the memories of many that loved him
