Blown Together By The Winds Of Change

Author: Donough Mahon  Donough ‘Drongo’ Mahon had produced a magnificent memoir covering three continents, and featuring dozens of caricatures and drawings of the many fascinating characters from his life in South Africa, Tanzania, and Brazil.

Here he developed his interest in agriculture, leading him on his long agrosafari through Europe, Africa, and South America. 'Drongo’  was also a charter pilot, flying extensively in East Africa and a manufacturer of razor wire in Brazil, where he now resides with his wife and family. This wonderful and colourful account of his family and friends takes readers on a journey to a past ‘old’ Africa and gives readers an insight into times that were carefree and uninhibited, unlike today's modern world.

MZEE RUKHSA (SAFARI YA MAISHA YANGU) (Paperback)

By Ali Hassan Mwinyi
Tawasifu hii inafuatia wasifu wa Mwalimu Julius Nyerere na tawasifu ya Rais Benjamin Mkapa na kuziba pengo lililokuwa limebaki katika kumbukumbu ya awamu tatu za mwanzo za uongozi wa Tanzania huru.
Vitabu hivi vinasaidia kuweka historia sawa; vinaziba baadhi ya mapengo katika kuelewa mambo mbalimbali ya kihistoria. Kitabu kinaitwa “Mzee Rukhsa” kuakisi uongozi wa Rais Mwinyi aliyependa kutumia neno jepesi kama hili kuashiria mambo makubwa aliyokuwa akiyafanya kufungua mipaka ya uchumi na siasa katika Tanzania.
Mojawapo ya mambo yanayowekwa sawa humu, ni kwamba, si kweli kuwa Rais Mwinyi alimkaidi Mwalimu kwa kuanzisha mageuzi kwenye uchumi. Kwa heshima kubwa aliyokuwa nayo kwa Mwalimu, hata akajiona kama ni kichuguu mbele yake aliyemlinganisha na Mlima Kilimanjaro, asingeweza kufanya hivyo. Isitoshe, Rais Mwinyi aliongoza serikali kwa miaka mitano ya mwanzo bila kuvaa kofia ya mwenyekiti wa chama (CCM). Mwalimu asingetaka, yasingewezekana.
Mwalimu alishajaribu kila njia lakini uchumi wa Tanzania uliendelea kudorora. Hazikuwepo fedha za kigeni hata kwa mambo ya msingi kabisa. Mwalimu akampa rukhsa Mwinyi kujaribu maarifa mengine. Baadaye yalikuwapo mambo ambayo Mwalimu hakuyafurahia, akayakemea hadharani. Lakini kimsingi alikubali hoja ya mageuzi, ikiwemo kufungua uchumi kwa sekta binafsi ya ndani na nje ya nchi.
Kadhalika kwenye siasa. Mwalimu aliona umuhimu wa mageuzi kwenye siasa, ikiwemo mabadiliko yaliyoakisiwa kwenye “Maamuzi ya Zanzibar”. Kitabu kinafafanua ilivyotokea, na kwamba wazo la awali lilikuwa la Mwalimu Nyerere, ingawa baadaye kuna mambo hakuyapenda.
Kitabu pia kinazungumzia changamoto nyingi za urais wa Ali Hassan Mwinyi, ikiwemo ile ya muundo wa muungano; migomo; uzawa na chuki baina ya wafanyabiashara; migogoro ya kidini na kadhalika. Yote hayo na mengine yamewekwa vizuri katika lugha nyepesi ya kueleweka na kila mtu.
Rais Mwinyi amechukua muda mrefu kukamilisha tawasifu yake, lakini thamani yake ilitosha kusubiriwa.

Sista Sister

Author: Candice Brathwaite  Candice Brathwaite's much-anticipated second book about all the things she wishes she'd been told when she was young and needed guidance. I Am Not Your Baby Mother was a landmark publication in 2020. A thought-provoking, urgent and inspirational guide to life as a Black British mum, it was an important call-to-arms allowing mothers to take control and scrap the parenting rulebook to do it their own way. It was a Sunday Times top five bestseller. Sista Sister goes further. It is a compilation of essays about all the things Candice wishes someone had talked to her about when she was a young Black girl growing up in London. From family and money to Black hair and fashion, as well as relationships between people of different races and colourism, this will be a fascinating read that will have another profound impact on conversations about Black Lives Matter. Written in Candice's trademark straight-talking, warm and funny style, it will delight her fans, old and new.

Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE

Author: Phil Knight  ‘A refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like… He tells his story as honestly as he can. It’s an amazing tale. It’s real.’ - Bill Gates In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed $50 from his father and created a company with a simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost athletic shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the boot of his Plymouth, Knight grossed $8000 in his first year. Today, Nike's annual sales top $30 billion. In an age of start-ups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all start-ups, and the swoosh has become one of the most ubiquitous and recognisable symbols in the world today. For the first time, Phil Knight spells out the complete story behind that success, peeling back the gloss of a global multinational to reveal the pitfalls and glories of founding – and building – Nike. From the almost accidental nature of the company logo to the vast complexities of a leading edge business split around the globe, Shoe Dog is very much a business bible for the 21st century.
