In a largely ignorant population of an African country, Dr. Cinzano, a government employed medical doctor, encourages his patient, Karamba, to embark on public health education campaign about AIDS that he was confident will save thounsands of his compatriots from falling into the traps of the dreaded disease.
The media and government embrace the project whole heartedly. Unknown to Cinzano, the media has other agenda, and so is the government. The media's real purpose is to sell their newspapers and impove their advert rating, while government sees it as an excellent smokescreen to cover up its shady handling of funds given to it by various donor agencies.
Cinzano finds out that his good intentions is about to be hijacked for purely selfish purposes, and he is determined to fight back to expose these intentions.
Unfortunately, Cinzano has set up himself against a behemoth of an opposition- a corrupt government, and an expoitative media largely owned by that same government and its cronies.
"The network of the spider's domain spreads like that of an ambitious emperor. Its tiny legs glide over the spun threadwork complex like a dexterous masquerade dancer bent on showing off its skills on the dance floor.
It moves back and forth, blind-like, its fluid motion belies the awkwardness of its trunk, firmly planted between the fragile tendril-like, but deceptively undernourished eight legs:its body like a bloated bubble in the middle of an octangonal tray."
