JM Kariuki: Makers of Kenya’s History by Simiyu Wandibba
JM Kariuki The history of any society is simultaneously the story of that society, and that of the activities of the principal actors within the society in different epochs. As the society moulds the lives and destinies of the individuals within it, some of the individuals, in their own way, contribute to the moulding of that society. Such then are the individuals who leave their footsteps on the sands of time.
The series Makers of Kenya’s History was conceived with a view to telling the stories of those sons and daughters of Kenya who have made an outstanding contribution to the unfolding of her history. Although the stories have been cast in the traditional historical mould, care has been taken to carefully step down the narrative so as to appeal more readily to the curious individuals who have been active on the Kenyan stage, in different was of life.
This particular volume focuses on the life of one of independent kenya’s most flamboyant politicians: Josiah Mwangi Kariuki, popularly known as JM. It is a life full of nationalist agitation, fight for the rights of the poor and landless, and determination to fight neo-colonialism. JM was modest and philanthropic up to the time he was assassinated in March 1975.

Dance of the Jakaranda book by Peter Kimani
Set in the shadow of Kenya’s independence from Great Britain, Dance of the Jakaranda reimagines the special circumstances that brought black, brown and white men together to lay the railroad that heralded the birth of a nation. The novel traces the lives and loves of three men-preacher Richard Turnbull, the colonial administrator Ian McDonald, and Indian technician Babu Salim-whose lives intersect when they are implicated in the controversial birth of a child.
With its riveting multiracial cast, the novel could well be a story of globalisation. Yet the novel is firmly anchored in the African storytelling tradition.
