"I think you travel to search and you come back home to find yourself there," Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Having travelled miles through pages of the remarkable authors and orators as Chinua Achebe, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ngugi Was Things, Okot P' Bitek, Martin Luther King Jr and J.F Kennedy among other celebrated Literary scholars, Literature has provided me a profound opportunity to find and embrace my identity. As an African child born and raised from Kigezi and Mpororo land, South Western Uganda, inspired by these childhood memories of friends, I developed a keen interest in the historical data from this land thus I've been able to rethink and recapture them in fiction as a mirror of society thus project "Mpororo Prototype" It is a mixed genre of both poetry and short stories that capture the beauty of the land and ideologies of the people. Nothing is greater than a land that raised you and so feel greatly indebted to the so called The Switzerland of Africa. In this collection, you will be able to explore the political, social and cultural beliefs of the beautiful land interwoven in the fiction pieces of the poems and short stories. I am glad to join me on this exciting adventure.
