Description: In "We Only Come Here to Struggle", Berida Ndambuki, in her own voice, relates her personal history, presenting herself as neither an uncontested victim, nor an unblemished survivor, nor a triumphantly empowered victor. Her story demonstrates the fallacy of the traditional-modern model so often applied to Africa, and her knowledge reaches from her grandmother's experiences in the early 20th century through British colonialism (especially the 1950s Emergency/Mau Mau rebellion), Kenyan independence, and contemporary struggles, both political and economic. The massive changes that enveloped Kenya impacted the lives of Berida and her family members in many ways, not least in her constant struggle to support 16 children with minimal help from her husband and generous though episodic support from her brothers.
