Christ Church is predominantly Swahili speaking

The church, Christ Church was becoming predominantly a Swahili speaking church when Chris and Eva left. The ex-pats now form the Arusha Community Church, which meets in a Greek Church, I think he said. Of people he knew who might be still there, he recalled Alan and Anne Renshaw of the Elim Pentecostal Church, living north of Arusha (Burka estate?).

Katrien Odendaal

We also [in 1994] talked about a recent Channel 4 programme about a group of Boer Trekers Voortrekkers who pushed north from South Africa at the turn of the century and ended up 'in the shadow of two volcanoes', farming near Mt. Meru. At independence they left and moved to South Africa. The programme established a connection between the community now in South Africa, and their past in Tanzania, and in particular found one lady, a Katrien Odendaal, who had stayed behind and lived with the native Tanzanians. Chris recalled there being a monument beside the road near Namanga, commemorating the presence of the Trekers

phone call from Jenny Hartley

Chris Stott

Chris said that he had just had a phone call from a Jenny Hartley, now living in Derby, whose husband was a wildlife photographer. He was accidently killed in 1978, just before the Stott's arrived in Arusha.

Hartley had left his camp well before dawn, and was returning while it was still dark, and was shot by the guard, shooting blind through his tent.

My name is June Hill .. My maiden name was Pearson and John Pearson, the author of Hunters of the Plains was my father. Jenny Hartley was my step mother and the details in the following text are incorrect .. Hartley was her second husband's surname, and it was my father John Pearson who is referred to in this text as having been shot by accident by a guard. The interesting point for me here is that until now, some 25 years after his death, I have always believed that he died before dawn whilst he was getting ready for the day' s shooting.
