From the Slopes of Mount Kenya
I was born and brought up in Kenya during the struggle for independence from the colonial rule. This book is about the trials and tribulations that took place during those difficult years. It is also about the cultural changes that the African families endured in that period, but where everyone looked out for each other. My family moved away from the village into the new emerging cosmopolitan towns and a new way of life where there was the merging of cultures from all over the world.This move meant losing some of their cultural identity process but on a positive note, led to their embracing in the activities found in the brave new world. My story is a personal journey that started with humble beginnings on the slopes of Mount Kenya with the euphoria and excitement that accompanied the freedom from the British rule. It is about growing up during the transitional years of post colonial Kenya and taking advantage of the many opportunities and challenges of a new nation and doing whatever was necessary to enable me to reach my goals and to find my identity and role in the new found freedom and independence.
