My Children, My Home

by Wonder Guchu

The African countryside teems with killers, seers, dreamers and fighters. In a feat of angry jealous, a man manufacturers a storm to snatch away roofs from school buildings. Reason: "Why is it they don't want to name the school after me?" A village pleads with a very sick old man to die but he refuses. And then they learn chillingly, that he has the powers to keep death away. Then there is the wonder boy, Sorotiya. The life of Sorotiya is the life of a little being who has not only settled on being little, but has since won the power that little people have over big people.
