Glad Ngugi is in London. I will definitely attend. He is one of the best writers of all time. It is so sad that the School of Oriental and African Studies has not invited him to their campus. I am not surprised though, coz SOAS has a history of ignoring African authors. It is so sad to see an institution with an African name undermining Africans. Ngugi we love you. Ngugi you are the best.

Ihave only met Ngugi on the pages of his boks but have found him most lively and human. Iwill miss the Lonon event but I am courageously convinced that sooner than later, our paths will cross and I will met tne Ngugi I have met on several occasions without meeting him. James Tar Tsaaior
