A biography of Ronald Ngala, one of the lesser known figures in the Kenyan Independence movement.

Ngala was born in 1922 grew up among the Giriami people on the Kenyan coast.  A studious child, he went to school, converted to Christianity, and ultimately went to Makerere University College in Uganda where he trained as a science teacher (and where he became a friend of Julius Nyerere, later to be the first President of Tanzania).  Back in Kenya he taught, becoming a school principal.  He entered politics at the time of the emerging nationalist struggle and founded KADU, the second of the Kenyan nationalist political parties.  After independence he became a minister in the new Kenyan government.  He died from accidents received in a car wreck in 1972.

The author teaches African Literature and Swahili at Kenyatta University in Nairobi.  Her introduction lists other publications about Ronald Ngala and about the history of Kenya and of the independence movement.

The Lion Books are written by East African academics and journalists and published in Kenya.

The Teachers' Guide (640-0017) provides extra material and teaching suggestions for the books Elijah Masinde, Mekatilili wa Menza, Mohamed Amin, Jomo Kenyatta, and Mwana Kupona.
