Going Down River Road Meja Mwangi

KShs750.00

There is no great plot or major events, apart from the ones mentioned. Much of the novel is about how a relatively ordinary man struggles and more or less manages to survive given the problems he faces, some of his own making, some because of the corrupt nature of others. Indeed, the corruption of contemporary Kenya is a key point in the novel, as we see ordinary people cheated by the rich and powerful, generally black. Ben does manage to survive, with the help of his friend and with his generally positive nature but it is a struggle for him and it is this struggle that is what this novel is about.

  • The Bribery Syndrome: How Multinational Corporations Collude with Dictators to Raid Africa’s Natural Resources.

    A shocking narration of how global multinationals make billions of dollars in profits by bribing corrupt African dictators and public officials to secure lucrative contracts in some of the most critical economic sectors in Africa. Dozens of foreign company executives have been jailed and/or fined heavily for violating the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act.

    The book focuses on 28 corrupt leaders in sub-Saharan Africa who cozy up with company executives of some of the largest corporations in the world. Both the officials and the global conglomerates make huge amounts of money using kickbacks, bribery, and corruption while millions of Africans languish in poverty. The Bribery Syndrome is a compelling read.

  • As a child, Charley Benetto was told by his father, ‘You can be a mama’s boy or a daddy’s boy, but you can’t be both.’ So he chooses his father, only to see him disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence.

    Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been destroyed by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. When he discovers that he won’t be invited to his only daughter’s wedding he realises he has hit rock bottom.

    Charley makes a midnight ride to his small hometown; his final journey before he ends his life. But as he staggers into his old house, he makes an astonishing discovery. His mother – who died eight years earlier – is there to welcome Charley home. What follows is the one seemingly ordinary day so many of us yearn for: a chance to reconcile with someone lost to us, to understand family secrets and to seek forgiveness from a person we love.
