Book Description

Imagine Laurent Kabila of the Congo having an affair with Monica Lewinsky? What if a mosquito caused the Ethio-Eritrean War? Since Somalis have successfully destroyed the State was the rumor that Karl Marx was a Somali true? Who in Africa cares about Viagra or Seinfeld? Is the African president human, mineral or vegetable? Can we have some humor in our drab and grim politics?...these and many more subjects are seriously but irreverently treated by the satirical articles of Hama Tuma, no quarters given but no malice intended. The "absurdities" within these pages will not fail to entertain as they prod us to contemplate the sad reality of Africa and, for that matter, of human existence.
