The Cock Thief

The Cock Thief’s backdrop is Moi’s Kenya ; the main character, the President’s driver and confidante, turns thief and takes to the border with one of the Leader’s significant emblems – a golden cock. This is the ultimate Kenyan heist story.

Twice Caine Prize short-listed writer, Parseleleo Kantai explores the interface between reality and myth, desperation and futility that emerges from the death of belief in a collective future, and ultimately in the self – and the subsequent unachievable hope of escaping poverty when one is without the usual advantages.
