Conversations with African Writers: Khainga O’Okwemba in Conversation with Hilda Twongyeirwe & Elizabeth Kabui, Oct. 21 2016 @ Goethe-Institut Nairobi
Date: Friday, October 21 2016
Venue: Goethe-Institut Nairobi
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 PM
In this session, Khainga O’Okwemba (President, PEN Kenya) will be in conversation with the founder of FEMRITE, Hilda Twongyeirwe and Kenya’s award-winning writer Elizabeth Kabui (winner of the Burt Award, 2014).
Habineza is born in a peaceful Rwanda. But that is short-lived. In 1959, the fierce Hutu Revolution forces him and his family to flee the country to Uganda – into the fangs of Idi Amin’s ghosts.
Believing that the ghosts of Idi Amin will never be exorcised, Habineza leaves for his home country where he starts a family until the ghosts of 1994 emerge and set fire upon the highly inflammable Army, militia, and the people.
