‘Internally Misplaced’ by Wambui Mwangi


In this story, Seth Karanja, Madam’s professional driver, is having an extremely bad day. Tribe has risen against tribe and his niece, Wacera, has fallen pregnant. To do Madam’s bidding, move from place to place and think calmly of a solution to his niece’s pregnancy, Seth has to watch out for the machetes on the street. Wambui Mwangi revisits a Nairobi under siege after the 2007 elections, and presents a day in the life of this character as Kenya burns.
