Another very compelling book from Dr. Austin Mkandawire.
With his usual attention to detail, Dr. Mkandawire tracks the life of one of Malawi's most notorious political ministers to his untimely demise and affords us a picture of the real man - a man who struggled to maintain his integrity under Dr. Banda's ruthless dictatorship.
Prepare to be shocked, humbled, saddened and enlightened as a dark and sinister history under an African tyrant's almost maniacal leadership is exposed. Malawi's 'Dark Ages' are brought into the glare of light and truth as each page is turned.
This is a gripping story. It is a book you will find hard to put down. I read it in one day!
Every Malawian, Malawian descendant or anyone who spent time in Malawi during the Banda regime should read this book. It will answer the questions that you dare not have asked during that time and will reveal the reasons behind some of the atrocities committed.
It teaches us that lives lived in fear are not lives lived and it should emit a stark warning to any African democracy that considers embracing dictatorship rule.
