It has been exactly 2 years since Prof. Ngugi Wa Thiong’o was last here for the launch of Murogi Wa Kagogo(Wizard of the Crow) and a series of lectures at the University of Nairobi in 2007.

It is during the launch of Murogi that he talked about Re-Membering Africa. It is now out, the book by the same title and will be launched today at the Alliance Francaise from 6pm.

The 174 paged book which is retailing at Ksh. 550 is already available in many bookshops and is a local version of ‘Something torn and new’ that was published in the USA.

Mstari Wa Nne will be doing poetry performance, Aziza – an Afrosoul group will be providing some soulful African tunes whereas Khainga Okwemba and Valentine Kamau will be reading excerpts from the book during the launch.
