“Verse after verse, poem after poem, Peter  Kagayi writes lyrically and with measured gusto. Interrogative, irreverent and perceptive, this is a new African voice that is as matured as it is refreshing. His subject revolves around the history of communities, of human relations, the philosophy of being and the sociology of lack and corruption that plague the real and imagined communities of his poetry.”

– Prof. Remi Raji
Poet,  Prophet In Camera. He is the author of six volumes of poetry including A Harvest of Laughters, Lovesong for my Wasteland, Gather my Blood Rivers of Song and Sea of my Mind.
