Description

When Michela Wrong’s Kenyan friend John Githongo appeared unexpectedly one morning on her London flat doorstep, it was clear that something had gone very wrong in a country regarded until the ¬†as one of Africa’s few success stories.

Two years earlier, John had been appointed Kenya’s anti-corruption czar, signalling the new government’s determination to put an end to sleaze. But now John was on the run, having discovered that the new administration was looting public funds, just like its predecessor.

Probing the cultural and historical factors at the heart of the continent’s crisis, It’s Our Turn to Eat is an incisive exploration of the corruption endemic in African society, as well as the story of how one brave man came to make a lonely decision with huge ramifications.
