PERPETUAL SEARCH
Perpetual Search is a nerve-numbing piece of poetry that challenges all humans. The odes here want everybody to ask themselves who they think they are. So, too, it explores human nature based on both sides of the coin of the exemplification of human comportment. It is the pursuit aimed at interrogating some human behaviours and practices that are sometimes taken for granted despite having indelible impacts on people’s lives. It is about the quest for aptness, communitas, love, happiness, power, wealth, life without questioning how they are attained. It raises questions that seem to be simple but are in fact difficult. The quest for human desire based on the search for a better life and for perfection is at the heart of this collection.

 

 

Africa's Best and Worst President..
Enter a captionAfrica’s Best and Worst Presidents seeks to deconstruct the current superstructure that colonialism created and maintains. It chastises and challenges Africans, academics in the main, to revisit and write a true history of Africa. Written by Africans themselves, such rewritten histories should aim to counter the counterfeit narratives which have proliferated, poisoned and diminished African sense of self and self-confidence. The history centred on African perspectives and experiences should go a long way in our quest to truly unfetter Africa from dependency, desolations and mismanagement. This book calls upon all Africans to stand up fearlessly and tirelessly to take on decadent and despotic regimes that have always held Africa at ransom as they get lessons from the best managers of state affairs on whose feats they must expand. The option to critique, cross-examine and dissect past African presidents and their excesses is aimed at giving the young and frustrated generations of Africans the intellectual resources they need to arm themselves in resolve and pursuit of Africa’s emancipation.

 

 

SOUL ON SALE
Soul On Sale (SOS) sounds like a rap song though it isn’t. It isn’t purely a poem but a long- provocative and vigorous song focusing on the history of injustices and those suffering from injustice urging them to take action. It explores colonialism, corruption and neocolonialism Africa faces. It chides victims to self-reinvent so as to change the status quo manned by begging and venal potentates. It seeks to provoke readers to feel empowered and responsible. Thus, stand and change the world’s status quo sui generis. It employs an enthralling-flow style in free verse to catch the attention of the reader.

 

Africa Reunite or Perish

Africa Reunite or Perish is a daring and timely book that explores the essence and nefariousness of neocolonialism in a purportedly independent Africa. The book shows how Africa spends billions of dollars in pseudo threats among African countries due to colonially-entrenched fear and war mongering. The book is emphatic on deconstruction and decolonisation as a categorical imperative for the reunification of Africa beyond the narrow confines of current nation states. Mhango takes a diagnostic-cum-prognostic approach in discussing Africa’s predicaments, and in identifying and proposing solutions to problems confronting Africans. The book ascertains Africa’s untapped potentials by proving how Africa can live without the infamy of excruciating dependency and beggarliness. It makes a compelling case for African unity beyond the tokenism of officialdom. It prescribes a truly pan-African driven reunification of Africa as the only means of reclaiming the glory she used to enjoy before she was savagely partitioned.
PSALM OF THE OPPRESSED
Psalm of the Oppressed is a satire that uses sheep and hyenas to show exploitative relationships among people. It lampoons political corruption based on nepotism, greed, cronyism, egoism and myopia. It explores some strategies which all oppressed people can apply to bring about change. For, example the book admonishes all those oppressed to cultivate the culture of doubting and questioning things instead of accepting them hook, line, and sinker. It questions the status quo that seems to reconcile the oppressors and the oppressed without the former redressing the latter. Most importantly, the book seeks to challenge colonialism based on foreign culture, beliefs and systems that felled the ways of life of the oppressed. Essentially, the book champions the oppressed to seek their manumission through toppling the status quo.

Saa ya Ukombozi or The Hour of Emancipation is about heroic villagers of Githakwa led by mzee Njema.
