This is an interesting novel from a great writer Ngugi Wa Thiongo.it deals with colonialism,neo-colonialism among other relevant themes.the main character Matigari fought against the colonialist Settler Williams and John Boy.the neocolonialism can be seen when the African Elite took power after the defeat of the settlers.Now Africans are ruled by their own brothers and sisters(His Excellency Ole,The Minister of Truth and Justice) who misuse their power and ill-treated their fellow citizens.This book goes hand in hand with Chinua Achebe's A Man of the People.They reflect the African realities after the colonisation.

This is one of my favorite books of all time. It reads like a run away movie.
