Writer Jambiya Kai pens a hybrid mix that rattles the marrow and bone of die-hard dictators and lords of war.


Powerful writer and essayist pen a rhythmic spirited    hybrid mix of mind boggling verse and a soul touching story of unwarranted butchery, demise, pain, loneliness and   a sudden -death caused grief in a world that is vastly wretched by bloody crimes, goriness, hate, carelessness, banditry, terrorism, greed and widespread disrespect of lives. I stand with this powerful message, this strong message must rattle the hate hardened marrow and bone of die-hard dictators, lords of war and terrorist groupings disguising to be architects of democracy and repentant peaceniks.  We stand right now amidst xenophobia perpetuated cemeteries, racism marked graves and a whole lot of savagery and barbarism. This strong literary message by a Poet, Lyricist, Peace maker and story teller in Jambiya Kai requires leadership from America to Africa to do a cross check on how they have plundered lives, the hope and promise of a great united world. Let’s repent. Thank you great story teller Jambiya KAI for penning this bold and vigorous hybrid mix.  We  are proud  this  powerful and well writ message . We pay tribute to talent , truth  and  a diversity  of ideas. ALUTA CONTINUA-( Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).
