The Ghosts of 1894

“More than eight years ago, I started writing an African’s story, a novel, a thriller about the story of a Rwandan running away from his country in 1959 – what is known as a Hutu Revolution of 1959.

I wanted to tell a story that goes beyond the 1994 but plotted in the thick of 1994. I tracked Rwandan story to 18th century. But I realized that telling the Rwandan tragedy leads you to the Ugandan tragedy under Idi Amin. And many other East African stories.

I lived in Rwanda for eight months researching this story – and while in Rwanda, I realized that Rwandan story is embedded in Uganda’s own story. So people who have been asking me about my trips to Uganda, this is largely part of the reason.

This painful research and writing and reading has birthed my second novel THE GHOSTS OF 1894.”
