Kwa zaidi ya miaka kumi na tano vitabu vya mwandishi maarufu kushinda wote katika jamii za Waswahili kote Afrika ya Mashariki na Kati, Marehemu Sheikh Shaaban Robert, havikupatikana Tanzania. Sababu ya kukosekana kwa vitabu hivyo ni kuwa kampuni ya kigeni iliyovichapisha iliamua kuacha kuvichapisha kwa sababu haikulipwa kwa fedha za kigeni jambo, lililosabishwa na hali mbaya ya uchumi. Athari za kupotea kwa vitabu vya Sheikh Shaaban Robert katika miaka hiyo ni kwamba Watanzania wengi hasa wale wenye umri chini ya miaka thelathini, hawamjui mwandishi huyu maarufu na hawakulelewa katika mazingira ya utajiri wa maandishi yake ambayo bila shaka yoyote ni mfano pekee wa utajiri wa urithi wa utamaduni wetu. Kwa kuvichapisha vitabu vya Marehemeu Sheikh Shaaban Robert tunawakaribisha tena Watanzania, hasa vijana kuvisoma, kuburudishwa na kufunzwa na yale aliyoyaandika kwa sanaa na kipaji adimu. -- Cover

Kufikirika by Shaaban Robert( Book )

Published at the height of colonial occupation in Tanzania, this allegorical work explores systems of governance, the responsibilities of rulers and the citizens, and notions of justice, law and humanity. In the imaginary country of Kufikirika (roughly, "The Land of Reflection" or "Understanding"), the royal couple cannot have children so they summon six groups of healers, each of which is allotted one year in which to cure the rulers' infertility. The sacrifices of the first five groups plunder the formerly prosperous country, causing the people to live in hunger and poverty; after much hardship, the sixth group prophesies that the queen will have a son -- however, the child will become gravely ill and to save him from dying, a human sacrifice will be required of one clever man and one fool. When the time comes for the king to perform the sacrifice, two men are captured. As the two await their execution in jail, the fool proposes to save them both
