Winds of change


no happy valley

Pursuing his dream of personal independence, Peter Lawrence acquires a farm in the ‘white highlands’.

However, Kahinga has other ideas about independence; that of his country. Kahinga joins the Mau-Mau, a Kikuyu organisation dedicated to ‘driving the whites into the sea.’ He is instructed by them to join Peter as a tractor driver and ‘wait for the call’ to rebel against the whites.

Peter and Kahinga end up forming a deep bond until one night, the Kikuyu, including Peter’s second wife, Rafiki are instructed by the Mau-Mau to pack their things and disappear into the night.

Did Kahinga go into the forests to join the fight? And Peter, what did he do?

This is where the story begins.
