Betrayal In The Cityby Francis Imbuga
First published in 1976, this play from one of Africa's foremost dramatists is in the classic cannon. It is an incisive examination of the problems of independence and freedom in post-colonial Africa states, where few believe they have a stake in the future. In the words of one of the characters: "It was better while we waited. Now we have nothing to look forward to. We have killed our past and are busy killing our future". Francis Imbuga is a playwright and actor. He is the recipient of the Kenya National Academy of Sciences Distinguished Professional Award in Play Writing.

This is a good book on anyone who who wants to know what goes on behind the walls of an African dictator. It exposes 'some' evils of our leaders and those of his inner circle. It serves as an eye opener to the masses if only it remains legal in the eyes of African governments. Go Imbuga
