Jomo Kenyatta, who led Kenya to independence, fist visited England in 1929. He returned, studied, wrote Facing Mount Kenya in 1941, and married Edna Clarke in 1942. His son Peter Kenyatta was born near Worthing in 1943, his father being a farm labourer in Sussex during the war years. Jeremy Murray-Brown’s biography Kenyatta was published in 1972 (paperback in 1974) and in the USA in 1973. Copies, generally ex-library, are available from £1 to £4.
