General Information:

Was a nice short person full of fun and was therefore known as "Bwana Machezo" i.e. Mr Playful. He knew a few hand tricks and generously displayed them at a gathering of the WaKisii at the open air market in the township. He often removed his dentures and caused both laughter and fright in equal proportions. He always wore khaki trousers and shirt and a wide brimmed felt hat.
