Tajeer and his overseas investor friends, in their search for oil, have reduced Lake Riziki to a mass of black slime and ruined the livelihoods of the many who depended on it. Now Tajeer is mowing down entire forests and choking life-giving streams to clear land for a multi-million shilling project. Things begin to go haywire when he attempts to evict Kibichi and his family from their ancestral land. Kijani, a fiery daughter of the family, will not let this happen without a fight.

With a veteran’s awesome mastery of language and dramatic technique, the author gives a rare poetic fusion of his passionate commitment to his dual subject matter: the environment and the courage of a ‘fierce, fearless, fiery fighter for all that is green and fresh and full of life’.
