Ngugi wa Thiong’o who, in the eyes of many, is a potential Nobel Prize candidate, uses the exaggeration and distortion of farce and satire in order to describe the systemic errors and faults of African governments. He invents a fictitious state in order to scrupulously examine the grotesque and cruel despotism and the delusions of grandeur of these rulers.
