The return of 7th Battalion, The King’s African Rifles, to Nairobi from Burma, 1946.
From late 1944 the British 14th Army commanded by General Slim executed a series of offensives against the Japanese in Burma. In the central region of the country 7th Battalion, Kings African Rifles, part of 28th East African Brigade, helped to screen the flank of British IV corps as it advanced down Gangow valley in its attack on the strategic town of Meikila. This vital flank defence exposed the brigade to some of the toughest fighting and heaviest casualties of the campaign.
GranPa Meria was in this battalion, aliniambia on the way to Burma kazi ilikua ni kucheza draughts tu, he talked about a man who was the champ, nobody could beat him. He finished the tour of Burma unbeaten

John Ngugi… His career ended when he refused an impromptu drug test at his home by IAAF officials.
He said they looked too pedestrian. After that incident, a while after he’d quit, other top athletes complained about the adhoc manner in which the tests were conducted and officials now have to make a formal request regardless of how and where they find you.

I discovered this character (pictured below) amongst many other fictional creations when ,in the seventies, the Kenya National Library Service run a robust and organised Service around the country. Does the KNLS still exist I wonder?

Who remembers this character? What were his famous words?

In 1976 Ugandan President Iddi Amin Dada declared Western Kenya a part of Ugandan territory. This announcement was greeted with alot of alarm by Kenyans who organized protests and burnt Iddi Amins effigy. The government of Jomo Kenyatta sent troops to the Busia and Malaba border points. Conspiracy theorist spin the story and say that Jomo was getting a lot of bad press after the asasination of JM Kariuki so he called on his friend Amin to issue the declaration so that the attention of Kenyans could be taken from the asasination. If it is true, it worked!
