Duncan Ndegwa is a former head of the Kenyan Civil Service and Governor of the Central Bank. He published his autobiography Walking in Kenyatta Struggles in 2006.
It's a tale of history of Kenya, struggle for independence, nation building versus devolution, disengaging Asians from commerce & Europeans from Government while Africanizing the civil service, reigning in unrealistic expectations of newly independent leaders etc. In it some leaders like Odinga Oginga, Gikonyo Kiano, and Charles Njonjo don't come out positively and there are a whole lost of personality stories that you won't believe.. There are more biographies and books - some thin on the money talk, and they will be reviewed in a slate condensed format in a continuing series.
