Karamba (Book) - 2/16/2009 2:08:10 AM
Karamba is a riveting story about one man's efforts to bring attention to government malfeasance in the face of a raging HIV/AIDS epidemic in a corrupt country in sub-saharan Africa. Through the eyes of the author, Oyenekan, the reader is introduced to the many faces of the epidemic. He also introduces us to the complex forces that perpetuate it, from ignorance about the disease perpetated by the lies of preachers in their sermons to their congegations, to the political leaders who line their pockets with misdirected donors' funds. What struck me particularly in reading this book was how well it captured the underlying dynamics we see around many controversial issues regardless of the country or continent, such as racial reintegration, HIV, and gay rights in the United States, which have been exacerbated by failure of civic, political, and religious leadership and silence or complicity of the media.
