Dr Frederick Ochieng'-Odhiambo

Nickname: Tsango
House: Nicholson (Serengeti)
Year: 1973-1978

  • Those years were the best sporting years of my life. I enthusiastically participated in cross-country and athletics, and really had fun playing soccer.
  • I still remember quite vividly how some of us would sneak out on Saturday afternoons and go for walks in Kyuna and Kangemi, and while out there would buy and feed on mandazis.
  • During the earlier years, I cannot forget the bullying especially from the prefects in the guise of discipline.
  • We cherished the days we would go to Boma, Chocs, or Loreto Limuru for debates, and the get-together thereafter.
  • Besides being a fantastic history teacher, Mr. F. C. Fox was a house master in a class of his own; he was very caring, and had a balanced notion of fairness and justice. I cannot forget his antique Peugeot car, which the doors opened the opposite way.

    Since leaving School:
  • Joined the University of Nairobi obtained BA(Hons) in Philosophy, MA in Philosophy and PhD in Philosophy.
  • Thereafter was appointed as a lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Nairobi.
  • In late 1990s relocated to Lesotho in southern Africa as an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the National University of Lesotho.
  • In 2003 moved on to the Caribbean island of Barbados where I have continued with my teaching and research endeavours in Philosophy at the University of the West Indies. My areas of specialisation and research activities are: African Philosophy, Logic, Social and Political Philosophy.
