  • Songs of Fire by Miguna Miguna

    Songs of Fire by Miguna Miguna

    Ksh 1899

    Brief summary  Magnificent. Miguna Miguna’s Songs of fire is a monumental literacy achievement; it does to modern literature what Okot p’Bitek’s Song of Lawino and Song of Ocol did to it more than twenty years ago. Each line, each song, each poem, evokes feelings of betrayal and patriotism. Betrayal of and by the neocolonialists, and patriotism of the revolutionary patriots. Songs of fire is a literary indictment of neocolialism, white supremacy and imperialism in all their forms. The book is relevant from Azania (South Afrika) to Nova Scotia. It’s a must read.
