Maurice Gachamba and his ‘Kenya One’. In 1969, Gachamba, a standard two dropout, assembled an aeroplane that even managed to take off, calling it Kenya One. Kenya's renowned photojournalist Mohamed Amin, also known as 'Six Camera Mo' was best known as a great frontline photojournalist, but he spent more time documenting his country’s beauty, wildlife, culture, people and leaders than anything else. Mo managed to use his cameras for more than a generation to bring East Africa’s most powerful stories into world view.
