After the Vote : Now available as part of Kwani? 05 Part 1
The Kwanini? series reminds Dr. Tom Odhiambo here of the pocket-size economy that came years ago to East Africa – the small sachet margarine and the likes; if economies create inequalities, then industry follows by creating super-small for the common-man. Luckily, he finds the pocket-size Kwanini? raises good memories, although it tells tales that don’t.
