A Casualty of Power - Reviewed by William R. Schreck, Jr.
If a talented story-teller encapsulates an entire culture and country, then this brave novel depicts nothing short of the new reality that is Africa, and it has the temerity to name the co-conspirators, whether they are African, Chinese or Western. In this sense this classic story is also a very modern one. Although Africans may appreciate this novel more, this perceptive analysis of modern-day Africa opens a path of exploration, especially for us non-Africans.
A Casualty of Power - A review by T. L. Chinyanganya
A Casualty of Power reads something like a thriller, and it is as difficult to put down, while simultaneously exploring some of the fundamental issues bedevilling post-colonial Africa. The experiences that Hamoonga Moya, the Zambian protagonist, endures will resonate with many in the sub-region. Corruption in high places and the recolonization of assets by our fair-weather friends offers a reality that we are quick to recognise. Hamoonga, a hopeful young student, becomes inadvertently caught up in a web of corruption and violence, suffering for crimes that he never committed.
