Sanya Juu

Rays eldest son my late Uncle Jack was initially to help in the running of the New Arusha Hotel. He also started and managed a Bus Service between Arusha and Nairobi, A horrendous trek in those days.

He was to meet his wife The Lady Hilda Borrick during that period. They married and moved to a ranch (CEP Enemy Property farm) at Sanya Juu. Because of her pregnancy and malaria attacks affecting my Aunt Hilda they were forced to leave Sanya Juu for Nykuru in Kenya. I distinctly remember this period of my life .Probably my earliest recollection which must have been in 1939- 1940.

The farm was located in thick bush. The house was typically German colonial style built out of local rock. It was some where below John Goodmans farm and Sanya Juu. Possibly "Bob the Poles" ranch before nationalization took place in 1973.

I never returned to that particular farm since childhood
