Available on Amazon Canada: Mansoor Ladha's Memoirs of a Muhindi: Fleeing East Africa for the WestEndorsed by Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi.

When Ugandan president Idi Amin expelled Africans of Indian descent from the country in 1972, he unleashed an intolerance that set off an exodus from the entire region. In Tanzania and Kenya, businesses were nationalized, properties taken, people harassed, and livelihoods upended.

Mansoor Ladha, who was living in Nairobi at the time, had to decide whether to stay or go. Canada became his new home–where he found considerable success, as did the rest of the Ismaili community–while East Africa’s fit of bigotry only left it behind.
