Voice of The People by EAEP
Some short description
OKIYA OMTATAH OKOITI is a well-known playwright. His first published work, Lwanda Magere (EAEP 1991), received enthusiastic response in Kenya and beyond. Owing to its rich literary lustre, it was made a set book for secondary schools in Tanzania. Besides writing plays, Okoiti is also a short story writer and media commentator on social, cultural, political and religious matters.
In Voice of the People, Nasirumbi incurs the wrath and hostility of the powers-that-be for engaging in a crusade to save Simbi Forest. Led by Boss, the political leadership would stop at nothing to achieve its heinous goals. But it has to contend with the integrity and moral forthright-ness of Nasirumbi, whose unshakeable resolve ends up being a nightmare to Boss and his sycophants.
