Lowell Mayor, Bill Samaras remarked  “When I researched and read more about you, I came to realize that your fight is not just about Kenyans and Africans, it’s about all human beings. I think you believe everybody should be safe, have a good home, a good education and a good future. You have written so many books about this including a judicial review. We are all very proud of you,”

“Thank you very much for this recognition. The beauty of such recognition is that it serves to energize one to remind us that we must move with renewed enthusiasm as we struggle put Africa in its rightful place among the table of nations,” Prof. PLO Lumumba
