What others say:
"The book is very unique as the author puts through his views by giving personal experiences in a comical manner to drive his point home. It's very interesting and fun to read... it's out of the woods!" - Roy Ndagwa
"Kenya is an intriguing country and the myriad of issues faced by the citizen are sure to overwhelm anyone who takes on the task of narrating to an outsider. Justus has done this brilliantly by using witty language, one that appeals to both the young and old." - Beatrice Adera Amollo, Librarian
"A young Kenyan speaks in words of his generation and captures challenges facing the nation and contradictory actions of the political class. The Letter to the Prime Minister is timely for it speaks for the majority of Kenyans."
