My Native Roots

A Family Story

by Joseph B. Wanjui

Dr. Joseph Barrage Wanjui rose from humble beginnings to become Chairman and CEO of East African Industries (Unilever) and the Chancellor of the University of Nairobi. In My Native Roots: A Family Story, Dr. Joseph B. Wanjui traces his roots six generations down the line. He regrets that today's grandparents, like him, rarely find time to pass on folklore. He considers this book his own way of passing on the family lore to his children, grandchildren and mbari (clan). Relying on written history and oral accounts, Dr. Wanjui has constructed a refreshing narrative of his lineage, juxtaposing it with reminiscences of his formative years.
