Profile:
Kevin was sentenced to death in Zimbabwe and jailed for nearly 20 years by Robert Mugabe. For more than 5 years of his detention he was held in the shadow of Mugabe’s gallows, naked in solitary confinement, and totally cut off from the world.

From Mugabe’s confidant, to condemned prisoner, he will recount his life on the edge, as a double agent. He will relate to you the desolation of being abandoned when he was compromised and detained, and also his lone fight to maintain his humanity, self dignity and sanity in a prison system that belongs to the middle ages.

Removed from society and with his fundamental human rights arbitrarily withdrawn, he has been there, done that, and has got the T-shirt when it comes to stress management, utter hopelessness, and coping under the most desperate conditions imaginable.
