Rebel without a Gun is set in an African country caught up in the turmoil of post-colonial Africa, where the cost of opposition to wicked regimes is imprisonment, torture or death. Daniel Lanebi, a clergyman, feels compelled to speak out against the injustices of the harsh regime running his country. Dissenting voices like his risk brutality from the regime. But evil, Lanebi firmly believes, should be confronted. In pursuit of this mission, he becomes increasingly isolated from the people around him because of his 'unreasonable' determination to speak the truth. Everyone is warning him to shut up or face unpleasant consequences. Fighting tribal violence, on one hand, and a coercive regime on the other, he sets himself on a dangerous path that appears to be leading to self-destruction. This young clergyman's story unravels the contradictions, challenges and sacrifices that underlie the future of freedom.
