About the Book

The day Kenyatta diedBy Hilary Ng'wenoLongmans Kenya Ltd.Copyright Stellascope Ltd. 1978 1978: 'The light of Kenya'Jomo Kenyatta spent most of his life campaigning for Kenya's independence. His efforts cost him seven years in prison when he was convicted - in a trial now generally regarded as rigged - of being a member of the rebel Mau Mau group by the British colonists in Kenya. But the African Union leader kept up his fight on his release in 1960 and finally led his country to independence in 1963. He was made president and remained in office until his death on 22 August 1978. Kenyatta - the name he adopted in the 1920s - is Swahili for "the light of Kenya" and he is widely seen as the founding father of the nation
The cover of this book showed half Mzee Kenyatta's body from the side as he rest in peace in a black suit, while in the back ground there was an image which looked like sunset.
