The population of Africa was a gigantic matted crisscrossing web spanning the entire continent and in constant motion endlessly undulating bunching up in one place and spreading out in another a rich fabric a colourful arras Ryszard Kapuscinski The Shadow of the SunA man I d unfortunately never heard of wrote one of the most engaging historical reflections I ve ve ever read Ryszard Kapuscinski reported on African events for a Polish newspaper for over 40 years He was definitely in Africa at the right times during the fights for independence military coups and so on Kapuscinski placed events like the Rwandan genocide and the lesser known Burundian genocide that happened alongside it in their cultural and historical contextsThere were many surprises along the way the biggest shocker for me being the fact that the descendants of former slaves the Americo Liberians just about re enacted what they had been through in America when they settled in Liberia among the indigenous Africans It s definitely a reminder of how history is often repeatedWhy I think this stands out as a historical account is not only because of the proximity of the writer to the actual events but also his observations I am always surprised when a non African writer tries to understand the culture in a non judgemental or critical way as pessimistic as that may sound Kapuscinski was definitely an observer and tried to understand things that were foreign to him things such as the African concept of time which I found very interesting and enlightening The European and the African have an entirely different concept of time In the European worldview time exists outside man exists objectively and has measurable and linear characteristics Africans apprehend time differently For them it is a much looser concept open elastic subjective It is man who influences time its shape course and rhythm Ryszard Kapuscinski The Shadow of the SunThe author showed the complexity of the African society the fact that it s not homogeneous in the leastA very easy entertaining read with passages of the most beautiful and poetic language A great introduction to African history which encouraged me to learn about the events in depth

A book like this would normally I would have imagined taken me very little time to read because I would devour it in a binge of gulpings and swallowings but it took me a good deal longer In part for the simple reason that I was taken up with other things and couldn t find the freedom to absorb myself in his world as I would have liked but also for the eually simple but at the same time profound reason that there was just too much to take inI listed it as epistolary and though it is not officially so it reads like a series of letters across a long career working in the continent of Africa as it breaks free of colonialism and steps onwards into independence Sometimes this takes him on a positive journey but far too often it brings him into contact with the dark horror or vicious oppression and poverty Years ago i read Thomas Eidson s novel St Agnes stand in which a group of nuns are cornered in the desert of the US and as I read it my throat experienced the parched land in which they were caughtand i swear I felt thirsty As I read Kapuscinski s accounts of poverty and degradation and the destruction of hope and joy I swear I felt just a little of that pain and sadness He is masterful at making you see of making you hear and smell and notice and this is a great grace Salman Rushdie talks somewhere about novels enabling us to meet and hear and encounter people from whom we would normally flee this journalist does exactly the same thingAcross this book you journey through about 50 years and he touches down in various places and times Tyrants and despots crowd around for your attention alongside the poor and downtrodden The eternal optimist in his writing argues back and forth with the realist and some lovely achingly beautiful images come about He writes of political change and geographical oddities he writes of celebration and colour and welcome and then flips the coin and there is hatred and fear and isolation but through it all is this really wonderful sense of his real love for the African peoples He does not shy away from the brutality and stupidity of things that have happened he drives home the guilt and irresponsibilty of the previous colonial powers whilst not ignoring the obvious culpability of the fools and much worse the thieves and thugs so often in power now but over riding it all his eternal optimist seems to gain the upper hand He writes fondly of the odd uirks and traditions and emphasizes the importance of cultures listening and learning and therefore beginning to understand each other even if not agreeing I suppose in many ways this is an imprtant service his writing might achieve He sometimes writes with his tongue firmly in his cheek and I found this an endearing breather after the sadness and bleakness of some of what he had to relate Speaking of a growing relationship with his driver Omenka with whom he worked he writesOn the day we first met I gave him nothing as we parted He walked away without so much as a good bye I dislike cold formal relations between people and I felt bad So the next time I gave him 50 naira the local currency He said goodbye and smiled this Kapuscinski relates cheered him and so he gradually increased the amounts he gave to the driver and after each increase the man s response to him also deepened until without stretching this story out any longer suffice it to say that I ended up showering him with so many naira that we were simply unable to part Omenka s voice was always trembling with emotion and with tears in his eyes he would swear his everlasting devotion and fidelity This humour might seem when taken out of context to be a belitling or criticizing of the driver but within the framework of Kapuscinski s admiration for Africa and its peoples it does not read like that I chose the example purely cos it made me smile and was a wonderful example of his ability to create in such a way that you met the people of whom he was speakingThere are so many lovely passages that i could just lift sentences and phrases from almost every chapter but that would be to fragment what is a really lovely creation someone described it as a mosaic and that is a great image For him Africa is ever alert to its chance for change and growth and so maybe the very last paragraph is a wonderful clarion call of hope and a good uotation on which to finish Everyone walked in silence to their huts and the boys snuffed out the lights on the tables It was still night but Africa s most dazzling moment was approaching the break of day
