Such a breath-taking story that exposes the rot in our society and the multivariate divides that exist in our societies on the political, economic, and social fronts. Definitely one of the best Kenyan books I have read!

The best ever novel, should be made testable in our literature syllabus. It cuts across societal aspects.
