A striking picture of Tom Mboya who in my opinion did most for Kenya. He kept the freedom candle burning with a strong flame as all the other leaders were in British jail. He is responsible for the emergence of U.S.A President Obama, whose father was among many of the students that Mboya helped to send to America for higher education. The Kenyans and Americans have a lot to thank Tom Mboya for the wonderful gift to the world, Barack Obama. He was a dedicated trade unionist and was responsible for the building of solidarity House, the headquarters of C.O.T.U (Central Organisation of Trade Unions) Kenya.
