Unquiet: The Life and Times of Makhan Singh by Zarina Patel
Makhan Singh is among a select pantheon of Indian settlers who not only made Africa home but also became leading anti-colonial freedom fighters.

That is why Singh’s enduring legacy to Kenya must continue to be the basis for construction of a society free of exploitation and racial animus
