I just finished reading 'Wanjira' ( a novel by Wambui Githiora and I found it a very refreshing reflection of a more innocent age that I fear we may have lost forever, especially on our university campuses where these days we read of all sorts of shenanigans and creepy goings on. The idealism of the student politics of the mid-1970s and the decency of the budding romances between sincere young people that is depicted in the novel made me nostalgic about an age when young people were not too much in a hurry to grow up and 'make it' and in the process sell out their ideals and bodies to the highest bidder. Cry my beloved country...
