en as hard and cold as stones. The events are real, only identities and locations have been changed to protect the innocent.
Kwenda, a captured woman of war, represents all the women torn apart in endless wars. Disobedience for them is met with horrible death.
These women are not wives, but innocent victims stolen by warlords and kept as slaves. This biographical fiction tells the harrowing tale of such a woman named “Kwenda”, and has elements of every major genocide in Africa in the last 20 years from Charles Taylor to Joseph Kony and all the warlords in between.
Kwenda is a word that means Journey in several dialects. She is the voice of many women crying out as a single, powerful soul. Kwenda’s life transcends all the women lost in wars to walk a single heart-breaking journey.
Lastly, in the need to protect many people, I changed names, places and created a fictional home country of Niruganya; which is an anagram of many of the countries where genocide have occurred. The reader must understand that many of these injuries are still not fully healed. If I used too accurate a brush to paint this sad story, then I might insight unnecessary violence.
The warlords were left with their names intact, so their shame might be evident. Only the innocent were protected.
