Ngugi Wa Thiong'o Petal of Blood comes to live as the struggle for power between the Huslers and dynasties continue to take shape, just a year before the next General Election.

While publishing in 1977, Ngugi Wa Thiong'o did not only flashback the events that shaped the struggle for independence in Kenya, but also foreshadowed the political intrigues that would shape Kenya's political landscape going into the future.

In the end, Ngugi Wa Thiong'o foretold that the struggle would be marred by political betrayal by the Rich and powerful elites against the humble but wise members of the society.

After struggle, the humble masses won and that became the turning point of the nation. Of course to the better. A nation longer for according to Ngugi Wa Thiong'o. Wa Thiong'os novels have been read world over and his fiction in most cases have come to pass.

As the 2022 polls continue to come forth, it is expected by those who have read and understood Ngugi Wa Thiong'o words to see if the renown writer's fiction would come to live as kenyans cast presidential vote in the next General Election.
