OVERVIEW
"The Indian question is back on the discussion table again
thanks to Zarina Patel’s recent biography of Makhan
Singh titled Unquiet: The Life and Times of Makhan Singh
(2006). In Kenya, as in most of East Africa, this is a vexed
question that often stirs emotions rather than engineer
reasoned debate. On the one hand are those who associate
Indians with all the racist corruption and exploitation that
go with their commercial undertakings. It is almost as if
all Asians are business people and ipso facto corrupt. On
the other hand are those, like David Himbara, who argue
that Indian commercial acumen and business enterprise is
everything that drives Kenya’s economic success. Without
Indians, such literature argues, Kenya would not be the
economic ‘miracle’ it turned out to be."
