About Me

I am currently the Executive Director of Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI). 

I am a husband and father who is deeply committed to community service. I am passionate about climate, environmental, and energy issues and work tirelessly to promote sustainable solutions.


“For over 4 years, Omar has been a key, innovative, strategic, and critical leader in the struggles, national and global, for energy transition, climate change, and overall safe ecological safe planet.”. His work on resisting coal in Kenya, standing with communities in pushing for their rights and pushing for just renewable energy as an alternative to dirty fossil fuels has been exemplary.
Omar is the type of youth leadership I have been advocating for, and I am honoured to have been part of his career progression thus far and will continue walking with him throughout this journey”
