Title: Kenyatta and the Politics of Kenya
Description: London, J.M. Dent & Sons. 1974, First Thus. (ISBN: 046007878X) Hardcover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Biography of African leader and his struggle for an independent Kenya. Jomo Kenyatta[pron.] (c. 1894 - 22 August 1978) served as the first Prime Minister (1963-1964) and President (1964-1978) of Kenya. He is considered the founding father of the Kenyan nation. In Kenya, Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi's main street and main streets in many Kenyan cities and towns, numerous schools, two Universities (Kenyatta University and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology), the country's main referral hospital, markets, and housing estates are named after Jomo Kenyatta. A statue in downtown Nairobi and monuments all over Kenya stand in his honour. Kenya observed a public holiday every 20 October in his honour until the new 2010 constitution abolished Kenyatta Day and replaced it with Mashujaa (Heroes' ) day. Kenyatta's face adorns Kenyan currency notes and coins of all denominations,but this is expected to change as the new constitution bans the use of the portrait of any person on Kenya's currency. Very Good/Very Good.
