The truth about the Trial of Jomo Kenyatta by Rawson Macharia
Kenya’s historiography is very strong on nationalism,and very flippant on societies which “never”‘ strugled for independence. The people who crowd the center- piece of our history are the rebels – the bandits who wrested land for their communites from the jaws of determined aboriginal communities; the warriors who resisted the imposition of colonial rule; and the men of fitino who mobilized the masses to drive the British away from Kenya in 1963. Our history is very silent on the “‘owards” and the collaborators who joined, or applauded, the strangers and the enemies.

Mastery;Robert GreeneKSh2,295.00Add to cart
Around the globe, people are facing the same problem – that we are born as individuals but are forced to conform to the rules of society if we want to succeed. To see our uniqueness expressed in our achievements, we must first learn the rules – and then how to change them completely. Charles Darwin began as an underachieving schoolboy, Leonardo da Vinci as an illegitimate outcast. The secret of their eventual greatness lies in a ‘rigorous apprenticeship’: by paying close and careful attention, they learnt to master the ‘hidden codes’ which determine ultimate success or failure. Then, they rewrote the rules as a reflection of their own individuality, blasting previous patterns of achievement open from within. Told through Robert Greene’s signature blend of historical anecdote and psychological insight and drawing on interviews with world leaders, Mastery builds on the strategies outlined in The 48 Laws of Power to provide a practical guide to greatness – and how to start living by your own rules.
