What Pa Chinua did


Achebe is dead.  A great tree has fallen - oak for ajebutters, we ajepakis say iroko.

The famous writer predicted Nigeria’s tragic comedies, observed and told the world about us; indeed he told us about ourselves.
For all those who have never read Things Fall Apart or a word of Achebe, here's a shortcut: The Voter is a prescient story of elections and superstition, of cultural upheaval and adaptation, and it takes only a few minutes to read.  You're welcome.

Donate to Wikileaks

WikiLeaks is an international, online, non-profit organization.
Its release of US diplomatic cables in late 2010 gave Nigerians access to documentation of high-level intrigues and related gossip in our government.  See Sahara Reporters, The Guardian, and all the latest on Wikileaks + Nigeria
The leaking continues and you can help by making a small donation.
