THIRTY EIGHT Years Ago -
COASTWEEK, March 02 - 08, 1979:

Coastweek -- BRITAIN’s leading reggae group ‘Aswad’ were to perform two charity concerts in the Mombasa Municipal Stadium, courtesy of the British Council. They were opened by Kenyan artists ‘Makonde’ - who in turn had been invited to perform with ‘Aswad’ in the U.K.

Assistant Director of Fisheries (Marine) Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife J.S. Mumba chaired a meeting of the ‘National Marine Anti-Pollution Committee’ which urged “immediate action to encourage and train the Sabaki River to use its Northern outlet, and also obtain the necessary funding, so that Malindi Bay could recover its former splendour.”

Rotary Club of Kilindini chairman Kishore Mehta presented ‘Paul Harris’ awards to fellow Rotarians, Navnit Patel, Chuni Shah, Clive Van Rensburg, Lalit Doshi, Kantilal Ruparelia and Pramrod Shah.

Coast industrialist Prem Prinja announced that the ‘Bahari Club’ would soon be transformed into a most attractive aqua-centre on the lines of a Hawaiain fishing village with 34 cottages featuring straw-laced bamboo thatching, Japanese beer Garden, Turkish and sauna baths, discotheque, nightclub, swimming pool and ‘Bamboo Restaurant’.

Mombasa Little Theatre Club hosted Henry Dale’s production of Christopher Fry’s ‘The Lady Is Not For Burning’ with the talents of Daphne Bagshaw, Dorothy Patience, Malcolm Maries, Patrick Obath, Tony Roland, Liz Swain, Vic Newcombe, Denis Patience and Ron Gale.

KENYA Cinema was showing (‘They’re hungry for your flesh ... you can’t stop them ...’) horror epic ‘Piranha”, REGAL (‘Come prepared ... the first new horror creature ...) yet another creepy-crawler ‘The Incredible Melting Man”, NAAZ ‘Grease” and at CHOX it was Dev Anand and Mumtaz in ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (My Dreams and Yours).

Letter writers included Mombasa correspondents Juma Sillaha, Juma Mwayani, Job Mashanga, John Byrne, F. Khambary and John Gardiner.
