Return of Shaka by Meja Mwangi
Some short description
by Meja Mwangi
Shaka Zulu is back. With a vengeance.
A small band of determined warriors, armed with ancient assegais is headed for a bloody clash with a large and well-armed modern army.
And in the midst of it all, Prince Moshesh Nkosi, son of the Great Elephant, descendant of a thousand kings, derelicts his duties and runs to the ends of the earth to dodge his fate. But fate catches up with him soon enough when he meets up with Laritta Duncan, a princess from a lost kingdom, who compells him to stand and face up to his awesome responsibilities.
Ayi hlome madonda. Let the enemy come!’
So let us drink to the fortunes of the warriors of the Umhlatuzi, to the heirs of the great Hlazakazi and to the women who bravely bear them and bring them to the place of the chiefs to serve and die for their people. Let us drink to The Return of Shaka.
A powerful story, powerfully told.
