From Kenya to
Summer Bay
Geoffrey Mburu

On the strength of a childhood dream from watching imported Home and Away on Kenyan TV, Geoffrey Mburu left his home country for a life of nursing in Darwin. But coming to Australia wasn't only about chasing the fictional Summer Bay lifestyle, it was also about providing a stable future for his kids. The fateful Kenyan election in 2007 saw Geoffrey's world, and ability to trust, turned into disarray.   

 

Geoffrey told his story live on Tuesday 14 August 2018 at SPUN at Darwin Festival where the theme was POWER.
