About Book

Welcome to Nija, a country in the heart of Africa, where power, corruption and deep mistrust lead the way as we are taken on a turbulent journey through its history. We explore the full extent of the country, its cultural heritage, its different ethnic groups and its tempestuous, ever-changing leadership. Each succeeding leadership clinching power, be it civil or military, profess their best intentions but, never being sincere, always leads to coup after coup. 

Infused with many poems which comment, in a comical or satirical way, on the essence of the chapter they introduce or conclude, this intriguing novel is "studded with all kinds of experiences." From power-hungry individuals to conventional and spiritual warfare, The Giants will leave you breathless with anticipation.

"It is unpredictable which side will win the war.

Is it the people of Nija or the GIANTS? It is too early to guess; only time will tell!"
