Editorial Description

Dictator Africa is a novel seeking to portray the excesses of African governments since independence, and how their misrule has gravely affected the efforts to build the continent. Dictator Africa, the first in a series of three, places a critical eye on the military, which has played a central role in forwarding the dreams and aspirations of most of the dictators that the continent has encountered. General Ikpeba took power in a bloody coup in a young republic that was struggling to practice democracy that they had inherited from the British. Initially, he was hailed and welcomed as a messiah that had come to deliver the people from what they thought was an unreasonable government. However, events thereafter made the citizens wonder who they had accepted to govern them. But it was too late. His hands were firmly in control.
