Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the stay of Henry Muoria family in London. It begins with a narrative of Henry Muoria's arrival in London. Then, it describes his schooling and everyday activities. The upbringing of Muoria and the family relations are described later. The chapter also focuses on Muoria's writings, all of which dealt with Kenya. From being a little lonely boy, with just a sheet draped over one shoulder and a stick, looking after his father's goats and sheep in the fields of the family farm, north of Nairobi, Henry Muoria became a man living in a studio flat round the corner from fashionable Marble Arch in Seymour Street, London W1. From discovering how to read and write at the age of eleven, he went on to become the editor and owner of an influential newspaper.
