We were bringing nothing but waterproof groundsheets. To succeed in following Livingstone would depend on a long series of triumphs over broken bicycles, swollen rivers, pathless mountains and endless swamps. How could we possibly triumph over such odds? Brian M. Bergin and Garvey. This book provides a fascinating account of Boer Settlement in East Africa.

My interests in the Afrikaner began when as a boy in Holland I was gripped by books about the Boer war detailing Boer victories. The book briefly discusses the scramble for Africa, the Boer war, and its aftermath and looks in greater detail into the role ethnicity played in the Boer settlement into East Africa and in its final demise in the early sixties.

The Boer defeat in the Anglo -Boer war in and the destruction, bitterness, and divisions which it caused among the Afrikaners was the root cause for the Boers arrival in East Africa. After my own childhood years in Japanese concentration camps I fully understand Boer feelings. My mother cursed the Japanese until the day she died. The period of active settlement in East Africa was short to Neither the British in Kenya nor the Germans in Tanganyika enjoyed or encouraged the arrival of the Afrikaners, a troublesome lot of suspect loyalty.

Their story is one of adventure, hardship, suffering, tenacity, and a brief period of triumph and economic success after World War II, but in the final analysis, one of failure as the Afrikaner returned to his roots in the South and abandoned the land of which he had never become a part. A couple of enterprising young Germans and a gunboat off Zanzibar yielded up Tanganyika.

By , 79 German officials supported by black Zulu, Sudanese and Somali mercenaries controlled 7.

There was resistance but it was quickly overcome at a time when the country suffered from disastrous rinderpest and an outbreak of smallpox; locust attacks inflicted famine.

Afrikaners did not like the German administration in Tanganyika. It was strict and bureaucratic and Germans tended to think of African interests as being paramount. They found life under the Germans too restrictive.

One German woman married to an Afrikaner is quoted as having discouraged and warned the Afrikaners on the ship bound for German East Africa, that in German territory the unfettered lifestyle of the Boers would clash with strict German laws. The Afrikaner wanted space and solitude.

He was not going to get it. Du Toit traces Boer ethnicity back to factors, such as race, language, culture and especially to religion and education.

I was fascinated to read that in an Afrikaner had argued that Afrikaners included people of Dutch, French, German, English, Danish, Portuguese, Mozambican and Hottentot extraction.

The Afrikaner moved away from this broad concept of Afrikanerdom and turned to the ill-fated concept of pure white, protestant, Afrikaners. Boers moving to Kenya had often stood with the British and were regarded as traitors in the South.

The journeys of the Boer settlers to East Africa, by ship from Lourenco Marques, to Tanga or Mombasa, from there by train and ox wagon into the interior, are rather sad stories of incredible tenacity, hardship and suffering. Both the British and the Germans found the Afrikaners stubborn, resenting and resisting assimilation, quarrelsome, and suspected them of disloyalty towards their colonial masters.

Du Toit talks about the grinding poverty of the Boer settlers, but at the same time he writes about them as chartering German ships to take them and their oxwagons to Tanga and Mombasa and of downloading cattle from the natives, so there must have been some fairly wealthy men among them. Maintaining church and educational ties with the South the Boer settler never cut the umbilical cords with the fatherland.

The enormous influence of Church leaders coming in from South Africa, according to Du Toit, reinforced the isolation of the Afrikaner in the larger community and, although they did much good they can also be largely blamed for the Afrikaner failure to assimilate into East Africa. Boer -Black relations are briefly touched upon in the book, but I would have loved to see more about them.


Seven Witnesses from the Central African Mission Dr Leader Dominic Sterling. Benedictine Publications, Ndanda, Peramiho. His other books known to me: Bush Doctors , Tanzanian Doctor and Africa My Surgery have all made compulsive and informative reading.

He does point out that there were others equally zealous and dedicated but he has no personal knowledge of some and others have been written up elsewhere. All of them died and are buried in Tanzania. Stirling is known to us, of course, for his many, many achievements in the medical field in Tanzania from onwards.

In he became an MP and from was Minister of Health.

All this can be read about in the books mentioned earlier. After retirement he continued with voluntary activities in the cause of health. Deborah Brautigam. Martins Press, New York.

John Iliffe. Cambridge University Press.

April Professor Iliffe chronicles much that was wrong in the past and describes breathtaking white racial arrogance, notably in Kenya, but his pursuit of his theme, to concentrate solely on indigenous doctors, sometimes presents an unbalanced picture ……….

The stampede of its rural dispossessed was catastrophic, so that all indicators of health in Dar es Salaam got worse and there was a sad decline in the medical profession. This alarmed the Minister of Health; he blamed their poor working conditions and salaries, intellectual laziness and a lack of leadership from senior doctors. As a result he could only reverse the socialist health policy; ujamaa was impracticable.

He began to reform the service but did not last and was replaced on account of the unfettered corruption in his Ministry, for which he was responsible but to which he was not party. Robert V Makarimba.

Friedrich Ebert Stiftung. This book, written by a law lecturer at Dar es Salaam University, critically examines the legal and constitutional rights of children in Tanzania and the administration of juvenile justice.

The author finds much room for improvement in the laws affecting children, the lack of specialised juvenile courts and the child labour regulations and condemns the importation of child pornography.

This was the equality of opportunity for which Nyerere had worked but about which Sykes had reservations. This book divides itself into four parts. The Afrikaner moved away from this broad concept of Afrikanerdom and turned to the ill-fated concept of pure white, protestant, Afrikaners.

Kleist was promoted to Lance Corporal for his part in that battle.
