The year is 1750, Kintu Kidda sets out for the capital to pledge allegiance to the new leader of the Buganda people. Along the way he unleashes a curse that plagues his family for generations… Makumbi weaves together the story of Kintu’s descendants as they try to break free of that burden from their past.
Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi is a Ugandan novelist now living in Manchester and is a former winner of the Commonwealth Short Story prize.
