Oburu Oginga: In the Shadow of my Father by Oburu Oginga

EALA Member of Parliament Oburu Odinga on Thursday launched his autobiography titled ‘In the Shadow of my Father’ that details the family life, career, and political pursuits of the Oginga family and Kenya’s history through his eyes.

The launch ceremony, held in Nairobi, was graced by a number of political bigwigs and high profile industry shapers, key among them were ODM Leader Raila Odinga, Royal Media Services Chairman SK Macharia, and lawyer James Orengo.

While making his remarks, Oburu said he was surprised by how many people were looking forward to the launch of his autobiography, based on the turnout at the event.

“I also want to express my gratitude particularly because of the enthusiasm I saw everyone who came here had about this book I did not know when I was writing that this book would draw a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of interest the way it has done,” Oburu said.

On his part Raila congratulated his brother for his accomplishment, insisting that the book will resonate well with readers just like other works penned by great African authors.

“Not yet Uhuru (Jaramogi Odinga), The tales of Freedom (John Okri) and Now Oburu’s Biography.”
Orengo also underscored that the book will have a huge cultural and social impact on the history, culture, and the people of Kenya.

    This memoir is the product of a profound journey of self-knowledge, a reckoning with all that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. Written with the help of Mark Manson, author of the multi-million-copy bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Will is the story of how one person mastered his own emotions, written in a way that can help everyone else do the same. Few of us will know the pressure of performing on the world’s biggest stages for the highest of stakes, but we can all understand that the fuel that works for one stage of our journey might have to be changed if we want to make it all the way home. The combination of genuine wisdom of universal value and a life story that is preposterously entertaining, even astonishing, puts Will the book, like its author, in a category by itself.

    “It’s easy to maneuver the material world once you have conquered your own mind. I believe that. Once you’ve learned the terrain of your own mind, every experience, every emotion, every circumstance, whether positive or negative, simply propels you forward, to greater growth and greater experience. That is true will. To move forward in spite of anything. And to move forward in a way that brings others with you, rather than leave them behind.” —Will Smith

    Have you ever wished your partner came with an instruction booklet? This international bestseller is the answer to all the things you’ve ever wondered about the opposite sex.

    For their controversial new book on the differences between the way men and women think and communicate, Barbara and Allan Pease spent three years traveling around the world, collecting the dramatic findings of new research on the brain, investigating evolutionary biology, analyzing psychologists, studying social changes, and annoying the locals.

    The result is a sometimes shocking, always illuminating, and frequently hilarious look at where the battle line is drawn between the sexes, why it was drawn, and how to cross it. Read this book and understand–at last!–why men never listen, why women can’t read maps, and why learning each other’s secrets means you’ll never have to say sorry again.

  • What would happen if a top expert with more than forty years of leadership experience was willing to distill everything he had learned about leadership into a handful of life-changing principles just for you? It could change your life. John C. Maxwell has done exactly that in the new 10th Anniversary Edition of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. He has combined the insights learned from his forty-plus years of leadership successes and mistakes with observations from the worlds of business, politics, sports, religion, and military conflict. The result is a revealing study of leadership delivered only as a communicator like Maxwell can. Find out why . . . ~ Abraham Lincoln went from militia captain to private during the Black Hawk War ~ Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France wins were made possible because of good leadership ~ So many people lost their lives or got stranded during the Katrina disaster in New Orleans ~ The CEO of the world’s ninth-largest retailer has a no-frills office, answers his own phone, and takes a salary that puts him in the bottom 10 percent of CEOs ~ Henry Ford nearly sent his own company into bankruptcy ~ The Law of the Lid is the most important leadership principle you will ever learn All these issues and more are explained in this revised and updated The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. Like them or not, the laws of leadership govern your personal and organizational effectiveness. “Everything rises and falls on leadership,” says Maxwell. “These laws carry consequences with them. I’ve seen them at work in more than ninety countries around the world. Apply the laws and people will follow you. Violate or ignore them, and you will not be able to lead others. But here’s the good news: every one of the laws can be learned.”

    The late 1690 and early 70s may be remembered as the years of the great bank and other armed robberies in Kenya. This is the true story of one of the participants in some of those robberies, John Kiriamiti. In raw and candid language, Kiriamiti tells the story of how he dropped out of secondary school when he was only fifteen years old, and for a time became a novice pickpocket, before graduating into crimes like car-breaking and ultimately into violent robbery. This spell-binding story takes the reader into the underworld of crime, and it depicts graphically the criminal’s struggle for survival against the forces of law.
    John Kiriamiti was imprisoned on 6 January 1971, after being convicted on a charge of committing robbery at Naivasha on 4 November 1970. Kiriamiti left Naivasha Maximum Security Prison in August 1984, just five months after the publication of this novel and those following which were a sensation with Kenyan youth in the late 1980s and ’90s.
