Soon after his arrival back home in Soweto he meets up with a Nigerian guy named Yomi who promises to help him solve all his problems. What should Bafana do? Should he bite the bullet and confess the truth to his mother and uncle, or should he rather take up Yomi‚€™s suggestion to buy a law degree and start practicing as an attorney? A piercingly funny yet poignant novel by the author of Dog Eat Dog.
