Falling in love across racial barriers is big matata, especially in Kenya. The country is segregated and seething with tensions after the Second World War. We return to our protagonist Lando. His return to Kenya is timed with the increased presence of the Mau Mau, a secret organization determined to overthrow the colonial government. The Mau Mau is slowly spreading its grip of terror from the far-off White-settler occupied Highlands into the urban areas, around Lando’s school and allegedly into his home. The winds of change are already gusting across Africa and the rest of the world.
In a few years, the Portuguese and British are forced to give up their colonies in India and East Africa respectively. Just as the racial barriers fall, the Goans who have lived under colonial rulers for over 450 years, are left rudderless and stateless. In spite of all this matata, Lando and the beautiful Saboti meet again under extraordinary circumstances, and that is the biggest matata of them all.
