By Muroki Ndung’u

For Kenya, the turn of the century’s last decade is a troubled time. In the vast Rift Valley Province home to hundreds of thousands of opposition sympathizers, a regime’s determination to cling to power finds a gruesome expression unknown in independent Kenya. Under the guise of ethnic hatred simmering to an inevitable flashpoint, the forceful eviction of these people is secretly ordered. But as this plan swings into action, an unlikely trio emerges to put a spanner in the works. Don, a foul character with a criminal past who seeks to redeem himself. Rosaly, a young smart lawyer who, against her better judgment, finds herself drawn into it all. And Gareth Maitika, an unassuming lawyer yet not averse to bending the law to achieve his ends. Together, the three might stop the regime from carrying all before it… A Friend of the Court is Mr. Muroki’s first novel. He lives and works in Nairobi.
