A collection of social conscience poetry that paints the picture of the giant politician, the restless citizen, the clueless youth, those struggling to heal from life’s scratches and the ones hunting for words to describe their experience of fiery flames of affection.
Akello means ‘I bring’ or ‘I have brought’. With this collection of 85 poems, Abigail Arunga brings you into her world of words and general cohesive madness. The poems are about love and life – mostly love – themes most people can relate to. Unless you’re horrible. Or dead. Enjoy.
“If you look closer you will see that these poems are not just mere descriptions or observations but they capture the spirit of the times. Our poets are continuing this standard of talking truth to power during colonialism, through apartheid and all the way till now.” – Duduzile Zamantungwa Mabaso
“With this edition we get back on track with our print journal programme. The unscheduled interruption that was 2015 allows us to come back with a journal that is pack full of new poetry. This is our ninth print quarterly. With this edition, we go back to publishing in print every quarter. The new poems in this collection come from all around the world.” – Dudzile Zamantugwa Mabaso.
