Reading Masimba Musodza is equivalent to my usual enjoyment of a sumptuous dish of African mushroom wood-fire cooked by a willing mother , a delicacy . The sequencing of the story HERE BE CANNIBALS is highly captivating and was diligently woven , suspense is the chief ingredient , dialogue is the nourishing salt and the dish is summed up by mounting tension, and tragedy becomes our full course meal, our story . While dialogue within is profoundly intriguing ,as it firmly unlocks the mood of our story , hence depicting morality and pacing our story forward. CRAFTY. HERE BE CANNIBALS exposes to utter nudity the evil , cantankerous and devilish shenanigans of ruthless political demigods and cruel- hearted warlords as they incessantly plant wars through their greedy , dictatorial and insatiable quest bloodletting ,devilish super-power posturing and unrepentant crude -habit of grabbing natural wealth of both military week and politically fragile countries. It depicts the demise of peace at doorsteps and death of human freedoms as guns smash lives to pulp and wars burn our earth to ashes, due to careless perpetuation by back door political charlatans and uncivilized zealots always bent on polishing the devilish egos of warlords with unwarranted filthy praise .Legendary Masimba Musodza is an extraordinary chronicler of events through the art of storytelling . TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC proudly presents a distinguished African Zimbabwean Author , a master of speculative fiction and super -storyteller Masimba Musodza-( Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).
