3.0 out of 5 stars ten weeks in Africa, 11 Sep 2012
This review is from: Ten Weeks in Africa (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
JM Shaw's Ten weeks in Africa tells the tale of Ed Caine who flies to the fictional East African country of Batanga hoping to make a positive impact on the lives of those living in poverty. Ed and his partner Beatrice Kamunda soon discover that corruption is rife amongst those local officials who are charged with channeling funds towards those locals most in need.
Ten Weeks in Africa is In part a critique of government policy in third world African countries like the fictional Batunga, It is also a romance and slow burning thriller, The author does not hold back in his description of corruption in African politics and the dubious benefits of western intervention. Rather plodding but worth persevering with.
