Look Inside

Going Down River Road

Welcome to the hellish underground of a Nairobi slum. Mwangi probably ranks as the most hard-boiled Kenyan writer of his time, though he does at times go over the top. I have personally lived in a few slums in Nairobi back in the 1980’s, and despite the impoverishment and harsh living conditions, there were positive elements as well – decent people trying to do the best they could under the oppression of poverty. So, there is some sensationalism in the story, but still not far from the truth.
