General Information:

Over my Shoulder - A much loved and revered figure still in Malindi today [1987], Dr Rozinger, has often told us the drama of those early days in Kakamega itself, as he and his wife, Joanna, knew it. They had come out from Vienna to the minefields in Kenya where he had been given a contract with a mining company as Medical Officer. Their story carried all the same quality of drama and vivid boiling excitement about which I had so often read of the gold rush days in Bendigo and Kalgoorlie in Australia.
