Boy Child In Distress by Kairu Magutu


In this novel, the main character, Karan (a short form of Karani in Swahili meaning an Accountant), was born into a poor family in a traditional setup at the borders of Laikipia, Baringo, and Samburu. He was brought up in a mixed culture.

As a little boy, Karan went through many life-threatening experiences, including attacks by wild animals, abduction by cattle rustlers, police arrest in a foreign country, and a difficult marriage to a slay queen, among others. Despite these challenges, he ended up as a successful person with a wealth of experience in solving life's most pressing challenges.

Karan was trained by his father to be self-reliant, only informing him when things got tough. His father always reminded him to face life with courage and wisdom.
