Jesus’ Africa by Patience Musev...

KShs2,800.00 KShs2,500.00
Patience Museveni Rwabwogo’s Jesus’ Africa provides a refreshing view concerning contemporary issues confronting the African continent and her people, duly captured thematically as rebuilding Africa’s walls. Tracing the continent’s historical domination through the times of slavery, the era of colonialism and the post-independence period, the continent has been at the ‘short end of the stick’ of the global development agenda. That past, notwithstanding, the work sends a powerful message of hope that Africa will arise through, in part, understanding the continent’s place on this earth and the role it is poised to play in global development. The past is important, yes. However, the future must be of prime concern. To rebuild her walls, the continent would rely on her spiritual pulse and deep conviction that would assure the realization of its rightful place. Illustrating with examples from the Bible, Patience makes the biblical stories relevant to the much-desired African Renaissance with her walls fully restored.

Study and Examination Guide

KShs600.00 KShs500.00
Studying relates to dedicating time and focus to gaining knowledge and skills, and the application thereof, in a given subject or subject area. Effective study involves the efficient use of time and attention to maximize the mastery of the knowledge and skills. Learning how to study effectively is an important skill on its own merit. Further, effective study requires discipline and consistency in reading, questioning, and identifying important information in the subject of study with the objective of increasing knowledge and skill in the subject area. As well, effectively studying for tests and examinations is as important as successfully writing the tests and examinations. They involve more than a mastery of the knowledge and skills tested. They require being mentally prepared and being in a good physical condition and alertness. They require a good understanding of how to optimize the short period of time allotted for writing tests and examinations. This guide is intended to help students three ways; to enable students effectively: (a) study, (b) prepare for tests and examinations, and (c) write tests and examinations. It offers techniques in the three areas which, if consistently applied, would enhance the chances for students performing well in the three aspects. It is a valuable resource for effective learning that goes beyond studying just for passing examinations. The guide emphasizes the value of knowledge and skills, and hence the need for understanding and skills as well as the application. It dissuades the reader for studying purely for purposes of passing examinations. Aside from students, the guide can be used by teachers, study tutors and coaches. It is also useful for education managers in the matter of emphasis of the value of knowledge in real life.

KShs700.00 KShs600.00
The Pearl and other Poems is a collection of 41 poems of different forms, styles and themes; themes that touch on varying aspects of life like love, marriage, politics, farming, education, business, leadership, religion, and anxiety, among others. What Other’s Say The poems in this collection are really enticing and evoke real emotions leaving me yearning for more. The content and titles have no match. Echesa’s creativity is just out of this world - Elizabeth Namarome Mukenya. I just can’t argue with the message in the poem “Dancing in the room”, indeed people don’t get tired of doing things they love. I love the poems in this collection, and keep coming back to them - Silas Khasao Wandera.

Lord Kitchener

KShs1,700.00 KShs1,500.00
Set in newly-independent Kenya, Lord Kitchener is the story of ‘two worlds’, epitomized by Ombam and Engineer Okwach, and buttressed by an eclectic mix of social and political growing pains of a young nation. Ombam is focused on education, childhood games, sickness and the like. Engineer Okwach’s are high-class socio-political and economic problems that bedevil the young African nation. Concerned with political expediency, despite his education, Okwach is unashamed of political sycophancy and material aggrandizement under an autocratic regime that tramples upon citizens’ rights and freedoms. It is an environment that is a graveyard of independence-era aspirations where detentions without trial and opponent assassinations are the norm. Unfavourable circumstances (greed and social stratification) mean that Ombam discontinues his schooling early, and endures many challenges that life throws at him. His education is left waiting till much later in life. Will either of the two succeed? You, the reader, be the judge. What others say “The author has successfully created an imaginative and factual work of art under postcolonial and post-modernist thought, a contestation between marginal and dominant groups owing to cultural and political differences. African independence has not led to egalitarian societies but entrenched classes, political chaos and corruption.” – Dr. Andrew Nyongesa, writer & literary scholar. “Written in a unique, appealing flowery language, this book is rich in history dating back to Kenya’s independence. It captures the politics of the time – ideological divergence, political greed, corruption, ethnic discrimination and political assassinations, among others. Like Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun, it highlights the dangers (personal and community) of opposition politics in young African nations.” - Joel Onyango, teacher, literary critic and founder of iTend-Kenya.

The Lady who Married a Crow

KShs900.00 KShs800.00
In The Lady who married a Crow and Other Stories J. C. Makori brings rare tales and storytelling from the past. The stories capture a tradition and wisdom which, if not documented, would disappear all the same. Storytelling was at the core of the social fabric of the people of the past. It brought together the young and old, and the raw and experienced. Through this interactive process, the community’s cumulative knowledge, experiences and wisdom were passed from generation to generation. The process further cemented the place of the storytellers as custodians of community wisdom, values and history. In this collection, the author has given a glimpse into that past, the lessons the community treasured and wisdom embedded in the stories. Written in the style of the original oral form, the tales offer lessons, and insights into history and culture that could inform the present and shape the future. What others say “The stories in this collection are compelling, painting vivid images in the reader’s mind through immersing the reader in the world of the different characters and the community in which the stories are set! The book adds a much needed African folk tale resource, and can be used as a pedagogical tool and for recreational reading.” – Grace Wangari, Children’s Book Editor. “This is thrilling collection that would interest readers across age sets. The stories offer moral lessons such as the value of truthfulness, kindness and good relations.” – Bethsheba Nyabuto, Book Designer/Editor.

Colour of the Skunk

KShs1,800.00 KShs1,500.00
The late Wilson Lwandhle Magadhla served in the South African Police Force at the peak of the struggle against the apartheid regime. Even as he remained true to his profession of policing, his heart remained with the freedom fighters; he yearned for a country underlined by equality before the law. Merit, he felt, should be the basis of judging persons rather than the colour of their skin. Drawing suspicion from both sides of the struggle, the good soldier soldiered on, balancing between loyalty to his people and the profession of keeping law and order. So what were the conditions like in policing during the years of apartheid? What was life like for a black police officer serving under the authority of one of the most repressive and detested regimes in the world? How did black policemen balance between the need for liberation from the oppressive order of apartheid and their duty to do law enforcement? Following the fall of the apartheid regime, the author went on to serve in Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) that was chaired by the Reverend Desmond Tutu. Magadhla was the head of the Special Investigative Section of the commission. Published posthumously, The Colour of the Skunk is a book for historical records, providing an insider’s account of working in government founded racial discrimination

Deborah and the Chicken

What Other’s Say “Deborah and the Chicken, has indeed depicted the manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. May we watch and pray as we hold to His eternal promises.” Belly Julians Orondo, a publicist.

KShs800.00 KShs700.00
Beyond the Morning touches on real life facets and their modulation on the rhythm of life. It has themes (life, death, loneliness, setbacks, success and more) that punctuate daily experiences across spaces (rural and urban), age (young and old), gender (men and women) and more. What others say “The author’s themes are clearly expressed in the context, as they soothe a wounded soul!” -Wilson Oluoch. “Beyond the Morning is an epitome of art, the very repository of human soul. It contains gems of philosophy and snatches of lyric rhythm artistically put and laced with beautiful syntax. Grab a copy and enjoy a mouth- watering menu of poems resplendent in imagery” - Patrick Okoyo Awino, Journalist, Communications specialist & Media scholar.

Crossing the Border

KShs800.00 KShs700.00
The collapse of the Berlin Wall on November 9th,1989 marked the beginning of multi-party politics in many parts of the Third World. The same also held true for African countries. The political landscape changed. In Kenya, the early 1990s were years of ethnic cleansing through arson, land clashes, evictions, forcible displacement, and murder of members of communities then perceived to be sympathetic to the opposition. What happened to those years’ children continues to live in the collective memory of today’s adult Kenyans. Crossing the Border is a novella which captures that moment in Kenya’s history. It fictionalises the experiences of a schoolboy in a tiny village called Odiya, situated at the border between Kenya’s Nyanza and Rift Valley provinces, near the small town of Songhor, in early 1992. Not only does the story record the sadness of those years, it also focuses on proper education as an important agent for national awareness, human compassion, and communal reconciliation especially in the case of children and young citizens. The book is dedicated to all child victims of political violence anywhere in the world, but more so in Africa, where similar evils are still regularly planned and executed by governments in power. What Others Say “Abenea Ndago explored and revealed a uniquely Kenyan territory in his earlier novel, Voices. ‘Crossing the Border’, an equally refreshing read makes western Kenya’s past ethnic strife uniquely his own. This is the work of a master who trod the very hills, rivers, streams, sugarcane plantations and tribal idiosyncrasies of his characters and painfully evokes and retells the tribal spirits of postcolonial Kenya. Though written, the narrative is a griot’s account of inter- ethnic history of the Luo and their neighbours, the Kalenjin and the kisiis, and the inevitable competing tribal consciousness .The politically instigated tribal wars of the 1990s in Kenya is immortalized in this postcolonial Kenyan narrative by a relatively young novelist”. - Mahat Hassan, Kenyan Literary Critic.

The Dreamer

KShs800.00 KShs700.00
Imali Abala’s The Dreamer is a book-length poem; a poetic novella, an unrelenting meditation upon the abuse of women that centres upon the unfortunate path of the dreamer. En route, the links between madness and dreams are explored, a mythical explanation for inheritable insanities, the devastating impacts of culture change and social fragmentation, and the breathlessness of having a tight fist of possibilities and a palette of advisors who all turn the dreamer away, or inward, with no path found for her self-expressive flourishing in the world. What Others Say Touching upon historic and contemporary challenges, this work calls upon all who are in contact with girls and women, in any capacity, to open the world and make room, to clear a space for upcoming generations, on a path strewn with good guidance and marked by the freedom to explore, to walk along a path made solid with life-affirmations.” - Joanne Arnott, Canada, author of A Night for the Lady, Mother Time, Wiles of Girlhood, and Breasting the Waves: On Writing & Healing. “Imali Abala’s The Dreamer is a must read for those seeking to understand female condition in post-colonial Africa. … What stands out in this story is that women have choices in redefining and repackaging their image in a male dominated world.” - Iddah Aoko Otieno, Editor of East African Anthology of Short Stories.
