Broken Hedges

by Joseph Kang'ule M'Mwirichia


Forever trailed by the spiders, political activist Kamirangi Mwenda has dedicated himself to fighting the locusts-the people behind the corrupt and oppressive government-a fight for the second liberation of Kenya, 


His father, the veteran Mau Mau General Baikioo, is a bitter man: wallowing in poverty, not honoured as the hero he is, and false promises by the government; the sacrifices he made for the liberation of the country are nothing ... and his son is walking the same path. 


As the locusts threaten to wring the country dry, the past grapples with the present, pulling apart father and son, forcing them to realise that the cost of true freedom might be far too high.
