Abstract:

"Mukoma wa Ngugi's Conversing with Africa is a wide-ranging investigation of Africa's dilemmas and his analysis is bleak; 'abject poverty, despotism, coups, ethnic cleansings--all under the rubric of neo-colonialism, all structured under the debilitating conditions of the World Bank and the IMF--continue to ravage the continent.' He argues for [the] imperative need for action [and] for Africans to become their own agents of change, proposing nothing less than a Pan-African solution to the ills of the continent.
