So tell me about you going to school. What was that like?

It was basically three hours, reading writing arithmetic, geography and all that, you know there was no calculators. We were not allowed anything. You must learn by heart. All the tables you had to learn by heart at least up to twelve. You had to learn about history, the English history, Kenyan history and as well as the Asian side of history. Basically, generally speaking, the world history you had to learn.
