    There is a store about a "white Kenya" in the Writer's Forum that I think is very enjoyable. I don't think it will go in that SA style segregation direction but it does explore a "what if" the white Kenyans had fought for their country more.

    I don't think anything like South Africa was possible in Kenya. You would need more whites immigrating into Kenya in the first place.

    It happened in Rhodesia.

    In The Invasion of Kenya, the story I'm doing in the Writer's Forum, I posited a POD where the original governor of Rhodesia is posted as a surgeon to Kenya instead in 1911, and falls in love with Nairobi instead of Salisbury.

    The basic premise is "Kenya with a Rhodesian-type immigration policy," which would reflect more of a move towards attempting to draw in working class people as opposed to the uber-rich upper class.

    That didn't last very long, did it?


    Mac, I heard of your story. It's a nice read.

    Who said it has to last longer than 14 years?
