The DNA of a nation is cast at the dawn of its independence from any form of subjugation. This template lives on, replicating frequently but transforming through political mutations. For Kenya, this dates back to 1963, when the country gained independence and the legacy lives on. In this setting, the life journey of Salimo bounces along professional and political adolescence, as well as close relationships with international friends and the people he serves. Collectively, they leave a lasting imprint and shape his future life. Hakuna Matata is the spirit of the nation and its young generation. The people, the nation and the profession, all are at the mercy of the ruling class that is shameless in the orgy of violence, political intrigue and corruption. The story straddles the political lives of the founding president, Jomo Kenyatta, and his often-violent regime through the political turmoil and corrupt regime of President Moi. However, the people and its youth are not cowed but they march on stoically, always expecting a better future of which they are as much a product of but also its architect.
