Matata means trouble in Swahili, and falling in love across racial barriers is big matata, especially in Kenya, a country seething with racial tensions after the Second World War. Lando, whisked out of Goa and back to Kenya, finds himself enrolled in a non-Catholic Asian school on the edge of an African residential area just as the Mau Mau, a secret organisation determined to overthrow the colonial government, is slowly spreading its grip of terror from the far-off white-settler occupied Highlands, into urban areas, Lando’s school and even his home.

In a few years the Portuguese and British are forced to give up their colonies in India and East Africa respectively, and just as the racial barriers fall, the Goans who have lived under colonial rulers for 450 years are left rudderless and stateless, and have to make hard choices.

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.

He has travelled extensively in Brazil, Mexico, Egypt, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and South Korea, among others, with the World Bank. Before this he led a different life as an architect and urban planner. He turned to the pen to escape retirement and now lives in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.
