Pamela Mboya grieves the death of husband, Tom Mboya on 5th July 1969 outside her home in Nairobi being consoled by relatives. This was the most tragic assassination considering Tom Mboya was a true Nationalist and he stood above tribalism. He described himself as an African first and then Kenyan. He served as a link between the Kikuyus and Luos. Today, in 2017 there is a total breakdown of the Kikuyu – Luo relationship.
