Kenyans have congratulated google for celebrating one of their own in their cover photo today.
The late Margret Ogolla is the big brain behind the famous book ” The River and the source”
Here are some complements from Kenyans:
"It is for us men to wash away our painful confusion with tears and then to carry on, perhaps there might be some meaning in it all that only glimmers like firefly in a dark night." – The River and the Source.

The River and The Source begins with a fine morning where a child is born in the house of Aketch the Second wife of the Great Chief of Yimbo Odero Gogni Adinda.
The child is the first born daughter in a family of already seven sons.

This was one of my favourite books in highschool.. Kind of like a sequel.. How the story transcends generations.. that date back to the Pre-colonial era ..with the birth of Akoko. The character development was also amazing. ~The River and the source. Margaret Ogola was an artisté pic.twitter.com/0qVMALhRoW

My inspiration to literature begun more than 5 years ago when I read The River and the source by Margret Ogola. A book that can withstand the test of time, culture and sex. Indeed she was worthy the prize. Happy Birthday Margret Ogola. RestInPowerOgola pic.twitter.com/CmmUXsEBw7

Do not decide the wisdom of a man by the brevity of his silence or the multitude of his words, a fool knows everything. It's only a wise man who doesn't hide his folly behind many words – my best in the book 'The River and the Source' by Margaret Ogola #RememberingMargeretOgola pic.twitter.com/KeTJiY8In4

As a Literature Major alumni of @uonbi, at undergraduate, I honourone of the uncelebrated heroines – Margaret Ogola, author of set piece "The River and the Source". She is the lady version of Ngugi wa Thiong'o. As you turn 60, give Kenyans more literary creativity @GeorgeAOMagoha pic.twitter.com/eqznzCkgpp
