New Must-See Series On NTV
Since it is quite clear that most of my dear readers here were terrorized so much by their history teachers that the mere mention of the word “history” triggers a fit and causes them to start foaming in the mouth re-living a terrible horror movie, I believe that the new series on NTV on the political history of Kenya may prove very useful. The documentary is titled aptly; The making of a nation.
Documentaries are certainly much easier to take in than large volumes of books like the several hundred pages of Tom Mboya: The Man Kenya Wanted To Forget that I usually recommend for anybody who wants to understand Kenyan politics.
The series which seems to have been done by Hilary Ngweno (of the defunct Weekly Review fame) starts tonight at 9:45 pm (Kenyan time) and will be shown on Sundays and Mondays.
It pleases my heart that so many Kenyans based all over the world will now get to learn a little more about our country’s history since NTV is now available on the web. The truth is that you can’t really discuss the present and future without a pretty good understanding of the past.
