ABC of All the Questions We Never Dare Ask
edited by Kwela Books, Weaver Press
In many countries in Africa the role of aunts and uncles has been displaced, traditional cultural practises have been eroded, and not a great deal has taken their place as a source of information about relationships, sex, gender, and the human body. The ABC of all the question we never dare to ask will help to fill this gap. Designed around actual questions asked by young people in southern Africa, it is an up-to-date source of information on all the major issues that affect their lives. The book is, however, not only for the youth. Teachers and parents will find it valuable as the book not only answers very specific, often personal questions that trouble our young people, it also touches on cultural values and practices that underpin our societies – some of which need to be reinforced, and others more openly discussed.

Street life in the slums of Accra is realistically portrayed in this socially-commited, subtle novel about four educated women who are inspired by the plight of a 14-year old girl, Fofo. As the main characters convert their library center into a practical street initiative, the novel invokes the squalor, health risks, and vicious cycles of poverty and violence that drive children to the streets and women to prostitution; and, from which, ultimately, no one in the society is free.
BETRAYED BY THE CITY
First published in 1976, this play from one of Africa’s foremost dramatists is in the classic cannon. It is an incisive examination of the problems of independence and freedom in post-colonial Africa states, where few believe they have a stake in the future. In the words of one of the characters: “It was better while we waited. Now we have nothing to look forward to. We have killed our past and are busy killing our future.” Francis Imbuga is a playwright and actor. He is the recipient of the Kenya National Academy of Sciences Distinguished Professional Award in Play Writing
