A Voice Unstilled

Archbishop Ndingi Mwana 'a Nzeki

by Fr Ndikaru wa Teresia, Waithaka Waihenya

A Voice Unstilled is the biography of one of the most preeminent Catholic figures in Kenya, Ndingi Mwana 'a Nzeki. Written with the cooperation of the archbishop, the people who knew him and aided by free access to his private diaries and memoirs, the authors have tried to trace the rise of the archbishop as a young man in the plains of Machakos, his tumultuous years in Nakuru, Machakos and Nairobi and his many battles with the political leaders of his time. A man of prodigious energy, Ndingi played a crucial yet insufficiently appreciated role in some of the most momentous events in Kenya, including fighting for social justice, fighting for the African traditional values to be respected by the church's highest authorities in Rome and helping in the growth of education in the country.
