Britain’s Gulag,The brutal of the empire in kenya;Caroline Elkins

KSh1,950.00

Only a few years after Britain defeated fascism came the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya – a mass armed rebellion by the Kikuyu people, demanding the return of their land and freedom. The draconian response of Britain’s colonial government was to detain nearly the entire Kikuyu population of 1.5 million and to portray them as sub-human savages. Detainees in their thousands –possibly a hundred thousand or more –died from exhaustion, disease, starvation and systemic physical brutality. For decades these events remained untold.
Caroline Elkins conducted years of research to piece together this story, unearthing reams of documents and interviewing several hundred Kikuyu survivors. Britain’s Gulag reveals for the first time, the full savagery of the Mau Mau war and the ruthless determination with which Britain sought to control its empire.

  • THE SNAKE IN THE POWER HOUSE This book addresses a subject that makes a great difference between total victory and defeat in the battle of life. It teaches us that no one can overcome the enemy without, without dealing with the enemy within. A lot of people have lost sight of the fact that Christian living and spiritual warfare are two sides of a coin that is needed for permanent victory. The author makes a clarion call to holiness and makes a passionate plea for a revival of righteousness. You cannot read this book and remain the same. It will create in you a hunger and thirst for inner and outward holiness, which will in turn become a spiritual insecticide against all forms of physical and spiritual problems.

    Oman. The ancient land of frankincense, windswept deserts, and turquoise seas.

    Into this magical nation come, three remarkable women, each facing a crossroad in her life.

    Rachel, an American war photographer, who is struggling to ~ shed the trauma of her career. Now she has to cover a quite different story — for a glossy travel magazine.

    Aviasa, a bubbly English woman who has rashly volunteered as Rachel’s ‘fixer’, a job she’s never heard of in a country she knows nothing about.

    And Miza, a young woman living far from her beloved homeland of Zanzibar. As the second wife of Tarig, she remains a secret from his terrifying ‘other’ wife, Maryam. Until one day, when Tariq fails to come home…

     

    These three women will quickly learn that, in Oman, things aren’t always what they appear to be…

    The Zanzibar Wife is a bewitching story of clashing cultures, of secrets and of revelations by the author of the international bestseller The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul.
