The Wrath of Napolo

by Steve Chimombo

In the novel, the protagonist Chilungamo Nkhoma, an investigative reporter, embarks on learning how the ship was grounded. But instead, he discovers that there are peoples and institutions with vested interests in concealing the truth. They will take great pains to do so and Nkhoma, his family and friends find themselves targets for hit squads. As Nkhoma retraces the original voyage of the ship, his mission assumes ethnic, trans-national and racial dimensions. His seemingly simple assignment grows into a process which resembles a national truth commission. Events culminate in a mass rally of the major political parties on the shore of the lake.
