The Reminiscences of one who survived long enough to witness the meaning of the writing on the wall. A tale direct from the African melting pot *** These are the memoirs of Jethro Mukenge Mutti, a former Zambian politician who between the years 1964-1975 served under the first president Kenneth Kaunda in several capacities. Jethro resigned from government in April 1975 and a few months later was involved in a serious car accident which left him paralysed from the neck down, with very limited hand and leg movement. The little mobility he had in his hands was sufficient enough for him to use a manual typewriter to write his memoirs. Mayibuye Zambia is a document of historical and political interest for anyone with an interest in Zambia’s political journey pre-independence to post- independence. The book covers events pre and post Berlin Conference era, the federation period leading up to independence.
