JM Kariuki: Makers of Kenya’s History by Simiyu Wandibba

KShs850.00

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.

  • Fifteen Years after the passing of Wahome Mutahi, we are lucky enough to have a collection of his revolutionary articles. Written in satirical form during the regime of Moi. Wahome was honest to what he called liberation journalism. This allowed him to challenge political and social power in his writings and performances. He used his writings to ask critical questions about the direction the Kenyan society was taking.

    In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever.

    This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose but also my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.

    As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you.

    Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.
