I remembered my late mother, Zainabu. She lies in an endless sleep, whose time to wake up is unknown. And father? A father to me was just a word entered in the dictionaries erroneously, it is meaningless. It does not arouse any expectant emotions. The word father is a theory by philosophers with useless imaginations. I had never set my eyes on a person to call a father.
The death of Kongowea's mother leaves him with a tough search; a search for his biological father. Furthermore, the death of his mother Leaves him in a tough world full of uncertainties and myriad of troubles. Will Kongowea be able to live trouble-free in a world full of troubles? Will he solve the puzzle of who his father is?
`A Good Day' is an autobiographical novel that takes the reader through a journey of flowing narrative crafted in a subtle idiomatic language characterized by moral lessons and breath taking suspense.
