The Invisible Weevil

by Mary Karooro Okurut

This novel is a fictionalised record of Uganda's past tragic national experience. Spanning the decades of successive regimes, it covers the story of Africa's post-colonial political actors typified by the thinly disguised Presidents, Opolo, Duduma, Polle and Kazi. Weaving together strands of political and gender concerns, and employing humour, the central image of the novel is the weevil.
