Kenya: writer Ngugi wa Thiong’o interviewed


From British weekly Socialist Worker:

One of Africa’s greatest novelists, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, spoke to Ken Olende about his latest work, Wizard Of The Crow, and the state of the continent today.

Wizard Of The Crow is a epic satire on neo-colonialism.

It is set in the fictional country of Aburiria – a surreally re-imagined Kenya governed by a dictator known only as the Ruler.

Britain’s brutal repression of the Mau Mau: here.

Britain‘s Gulag in Kenya: here.
