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.

Rogue lawyer;John GrishamKShs1,390.00Read more
Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee, his driver, whoâ€™s also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun.Â
Sebastian defends people other lawyers wonâ€™t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Â Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one. He hates injustice, doesnâ€™t like insurance companies, banks, or big corporations; he distrusts all levels of government and laughs at the justice systemâ€™s notions of ethical behavior.
Sebastian Rudd is one of John Grishamâ€™s most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet. Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best.
Stay with Me: A novel By Ayobami AdebayoKShs1,595.00Add to cart
Ilesa, Nigeria. Ever since they first met and fell in love at university, Yejide and Akin have agreed: polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage—after consulting fertility doctors and healers, and trying strange teas and unlikely cures—Yejide is still not pregnant. She assumes she still has time—until her in-laws arrive on her doorstep with a young woman they introduce as Akin’s second wife. Furious, shocked, and livid with jealousy, Yejide knows the only way to save her marriage is to get pregnant. Which, finally, she does—but at a cost far greater than she could have dared to imagine.
The unforgettable story of a marriage as seen through the eyes of both husband and wife, Stay With Me asks how much we can sacrifice for the sake of family.
