Overview

Fictional and non-fictional essays on African Aesthetics, Music, Jurisprudence, Ethno-Politics & Good Governance. From the author of "Bitterness. An African Novel from Zambia". -- Over the last few years, Zambian writer Malama Katulwende (winner of the Julius Chongo Award 2006 for Best Creative Writing at the Ngoma Awards ceremonies) has published more than forty articles for the website ukzambians.co.uk.
These essays helped him build up a large fan base. The topics of his passionate and often controversial "Discourses" range from Zambian hip-hop and Zambian music in general to art, fame, eroticism, and - of course - philosophy and African politics. His 70-page fictional essay "The Clouds" about the incarceration and mistreatment of a Zambian writer and thinker by Zambian authorities is being published here for the first time. On three occasions, Malama Katulwende himself has been arrested by the Zambian Police Service in connection with his work.
