CASE # 594 (Posted August 23, 2015, Now Solved)

Hi, I am trying to connect with my school friends from the late 60s and early 70s who were at the Star of the Sea school in Mombasa, Kenya. I was in Primary school from 1963-970 and Secondary school in 1970-1974. My maiden name was Shehnaz Hassanali and I have established a group and met up with several Gujarati and Goan friends including Meera Malde, Anjani Dave, Ida Mendonsa, Elizabeth Martins, Sheena Castelino and Meera Dedhi. I remember two Parsi girls called Marukh Dara Patel and Armin Kakaria (not sure names spelt correctly) who were in my class but I have no idea what happened to them after I left Mombasa for London in 1975.   I and the other school girls would be delighted if I were able to get in touch with them through your network. The girls would have been born in 1957/58.Many thanks. Shehnaz Shehnaz Fazal  If you have any information, please write directly to on facebook and copy so it can be recorded as a solved case.

CASE # 594 (Solved July 15, 2016) Hi Shehnaz, It was such a surprise to be forwarded this by a friend in UK. It brought back very happy memories of my childhood and Mombasa flooding back. I recognize all the names and remember all the girls, with the exception of Meera Dedhi. I have been settled in Toronto for over 25 years, having left Kenya in 1976 for UK and returning to Kenya in 1983. I stayed in Nairobi till 1987 and then emigrated to Canada. I would very much like to be in touch with the group, but I do not have facebook (intentionally). I plan to be in London in July and hopefully can meet up with some of you. Cheers Maharuk
