  • It was said in those days that the British army officers who wanted to settle in Africa came to Kenya and the enlisted men went to Rhodesia. One of the bluebloods who staked his claim in Kenya was Sam Weller’s father, an accomplished artist, poet and violinist. He arrived in 1925, after a career as a builder of railways in India, to establish a vocational training school for Africans.
