9780889774742: Memoirs of a Muhindi: Fleeing East Africa for the West (The Regina Collection)

In Memoirs of a Muhindi, Mansoor Ladha bears witness to what happens when nations turn against entire religious and ethnic groups.

When, in 1972, Ugandan president Idi Amin expelled Africans of Indian descent from the country, he unleashed an intolerance that set off an exodus from the entire region. In Tanzania and Kenya, businesses were nationalized, properties taken, people harassed, and livelihoods upended.

Mansoor Ladha, who was living in Nairobi at the time, had to decide whether to stay or leave. Canada became his new home―where he found considerable success, as did the rest of the Ismaili community―while East Africa never recovered from its fit of bigotry.

About the Author:

A newspaper columnist and award-winning journalist, Mansoor Ladha is the author of A Portrait in Pluralism: Aga Khan’s Shia Ismaili Muslims.

Review:

"Journalist and author Ladha traces the twisting path of his life, from his childhood years in Zanzibar, a semiautonomous part of Tanzania, to his employment in Kenya, exile in England, and immigration to Canada. This memoir illuminates the complex history of East Africans of Indian origin (Muhindis in Swahili) under British colonialism and then African independence, and explains the migration of many Muhindis to Europe, Canada, and America... This honest memoir will interest all readers, allowing them to understand the international effects of government policies that exclude refugees, along with the societal efforts that help them enter and adopt a new country as their own."
