“Rich with imagery that is both profound and entracing,it journeys between the scintillatingly funny and poignant.
It both regales and rouses us to looksearchinglyat realities of our contemporary lives” Joshua Mmali Author of The Betrothal(drama)and former BBC Uganda correspondent.
“ Peter Kagayi’s work asks questions that open new paths,and where they do not open ew paths they show us new ways to take old paths.He invites you to walk down paths with him,on abuses,trains and muddy roads always looking around and asking “where am I”
