Kenya @50


This is a book about the intersection of culture, identity and politics over the fifty years of Kenya’s independence .It tries to answer questions about how the states defines individuals and the means by which individuals shape their own sense of belonging. Dr. Nyairo rummages through a vast corpus of cultural productions to find the evidence for her claims – court cases, soap operas, songs, obituaries, matatu slogans, NGO-longo, SMSs, emails, Tweets and the longer, autobiographical stories that Kenyans write about the people they think they are.
