Olonana Ole Mbatian ( Makers of Kenya’s History ) by Peter Ndege

KShs750.00

Olonana ole Mbatian, popularly known as Lenana, was one of the most outstanding Masai and Kenyan leaders, African chief and Laibon (prophet/visionary), whose life spanned the second half of the nineteenth, and the first decade of the twentieth centuries.

He lived through and influenced a crucial period in Kenya’s history: when the Masai were engaged in nation building, there was competition for leadership, land, people, livestock, wealth and power; and when European intrusions, which were becoming ever more intensive, were shaping Kenya’s colonial culture and economy. This is a balanced and critical study of an individual’s biography, and historical context.

It analyses for example to what extent Olonana’s relationship with the colonialists influenced colonial policy on pastoralism; the devastating effects of colonial policy on pastoralism; and why the Masai shunned westernism, education and trade in favour of traditional pastoralism, and the position of Olonana on these issues. It considers popular perceptions of Olonana as a champion of Masai cultural heritage; and assesses his achievements and legacy. This is a concise biography of a key figure in Masai history, about whom little has been written, which serves well as a general introduction to the history and key figures of the period.

  • Making Cents book By Waceke Nduati Omanga

    Unlike many books, the content is based on money stories of real people in Kenya – failures, lessons, and successes. In the book’s introduction, the author, Waceke shares her own journey from her experiences as a child to realizing the value of lunch money which got her started in empowering thousands to take control of their finances.

    You will also meet Douglas who observes his parents struggle financially despite having land and gets caught up in living a ‘large’ lifestyle as he starts working only to realize that he is heading down the same path. The book follows him all the way to show you how he made over Kes 10 million.

    Faith boldly tackles with us the dynamics of money in marriages and what lack of communication about money does all the way the bold decisions they had to make to lead them to Financial Freedom. Dishon shows us how wealth creation can start at a very young age. How he used what he had in front of him – time and ability to learn a skill on YouTube – to start him off all the way to the passionate entrepreneur he has become.

  • Meja made comparison (Kill Me Quick, 1). Mwangi selects realistic details from ordinary life, and his novel chronicles the fate of an impotent silent majority. He has a vision of life as hell. His fiction shows him to be a humanist because human concerns like class and gender inequality remain largely foregrounded in the novel.

  • New!

    Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.’

    A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel – a black man falsely charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.

    To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.
