I am delighted to announce the release of my first anthology book, #TWAWEZA: a Collection of 24 African Non-Fiction Stories.

Twaweza is a Swahili word which means ‘we can.’ In the ideological sense, it invokes the spirit of togetherness.

The anthology is an outcome of the #PenPen Africa Writers Residency held in Kenya and Nigeria respectively. The residency was organized by the African Writers Development Trust (AWDT) in which 12 selected emerging African writers were selected by a panel of editors.

My stories are:

1. The Refugee and The Mosquitoes – a travelogue and my self-exile ( page 133)

2. Maimuna – Gambian folklore ( page 261)
