Africans are really rich in legends, I tried to interpret 4 my own discovery of which I discovered it very interesting and meaningful 2 all the Africans, if we can understand it fully.
The tale had
never concentrate on postcolonial only, but 2 us as the people of Africa with our disunity and rigidness of misunderstanding each other.

THE RIVER BETWEEN

Another powerfully written tale about pre-colonial Africa by the kenyan legend Ngugi Wa Thiong'o

its an interesting book that one reads not only with interest but also to learn where as Chinua Achebe said "the rain started beating us" in Kenya. Its a microcosm of the African countries depicted by the dawning of the colonial era not only in Kenya but in many other countries.
