Way Back Home

It’s great to be back after such a long time. I don’t remember when was the last I posted something here, about two to three years. But I’m the bearer of good news-just finished editing my manuscript of my forth coming novel Titled-Way Back Home. It will be out in April 2013, and Kwela is the publisher. So, I’m Back..
Below is how Chapter one looks like

Chapter One
I, Kimathi Fezile Tito, do solemnly declare that I am a soldier of the South African revolution. I am a volunteer fighter, committed to the struggle for justice. I place myself in the service of the people, The Movement and its allies. I take up arms in response to the wishes of the masses. I promise to serve with discipline and dedication at all times, maintaining the integrity and solidarity of the people’s army. Should I violate any of these, I accept that I should be punished by all means not excluding death. A tooth for a tooth; an eye for an eye; a life for a life.

13 August 1986, Angola
