Chimanlal Hirabhai Patel (1957 - 1960)

I was born in Mombasa, and attended Mabheni Primary School and Allidina Visram High School. I moved to Nairobi in May 1956 and joined Eastleigh Secondary School where I was admitted in Form 3R. I left E S S in 1957 and joined Teachers Training College in February 1958. After completing 2 years' training I taught at High Ridge Primary for the next 5 years. I left Kenya in December 1964 and came to the UK.

I gave up teaching and started studying accountancy. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant and worked for a firm of accountants for a few years. In 1972 I started practising as a sole practitioner – Shukla & Co. Chartered Accountants.

In August 1963 I married Swaraj in Nakuru. We have 3 children, Anand (Son) Neelam (daughter) and Shamit (Son). All three are happily married and live with their respective partners and children in their own homes.

I took active part in all sports in my younger days and now have started playing the most frustrating ball game called golf. I play a couple of times a week, weather permitting. The most important part of this game is the 19th hole where you sit down to either celebrate your good round or drown your sorrows for playing poorly!
