A classical novel, exploiting the dark realty of struggle for and independence in Kenya. But why must Ngugi always use only Gikuyu characters (Mugo, Kihika, Muumbi..) in reflecting the war for national independence. The outside-country community who read of his works know of only one tribe in Kenya, and above all that fought for liberation.
