It’s in the 1980s in Mbale, a small town in Western Kenya. Hillary Lisimba Ambani is growing up with a strict disciplinarian mother whom he calls Thatcher who beat the hell out of him for every infraction he did or did not commit.
In The Boy with Shoes, Hillary tells us how it was to grow up in that era, a time that set pace for the 21st Century middleclass. When his mother bought him the first ever and only pair of shoes in the whole school, it was his bane—he was an outcast in school, and a recalcitrant at home: he wants to wear the shoes yet he doesn’t; he has to, yet he doesn’t.
The book is a spellbinding narration of how life was growing up in the ‘80s, the dreams all children have of becoming anything when they grow up, and the authoritarianism that mothers had on their children.

Choose Now …
In The Power of Choice, author John Abdub Wako presents a ten-point holistic, principle-centered approach for individual success. He points out that we make the CHOICE to succeed or fail, and this he reveals through insights drawn from his experiences and pointed anecdotes.
John states that the power of positive thinking, determination, and desire, combined with the power of NOW, when focused well, enhances confidence in what we are doing and aiming to achieve. However, we need to have patience and consistency in networking with other people who play a key role in our journey to success, but we should have the courage to say no to what won’t contribute to our success and be steadfast in the YES of what we undertake.
