I wonder if you will read it as many times as I read yours. When we met, we had similar reasons for pooling our talents. He sleeps all night and is no trouble to us. It is as though all three men have a connection or bond with one another and that their spirit has not been broken by the fact that they are to face a firing squad. He must have taken pity on you for what his sister did and convinced you to join afica gang. Tell Jimba I did shed a tear to honor him, in fact two.


We said we had robbed and killed. How do I know about Monica, you ask? You will make a grave for me nonetheless.

You were the most thoughtful and kind. I say, I do feel sorry for them. Yet he will never know if she will respect his wishes. Obviously the title of the story has a symbolic significance.

As this night dissolves into day, Sazan, Jimba and I shall be free.

Sazan krn I ought at least to have done myself a favor of sound sleep on my last night on earth. I asked around and was directed to your place. I pity his ignorance and cannot envy his complacency.

See and hear my countrymen as they cheer us to our death. Education in Africa is for brighter future but in Asia and Europe its for serving the community we are doomed as Africans. He was antisocial, right? Marxist Kyalo 3 August at We had to pay. We had forced him to be honest with his vocation, to the laws of the country and to the course if justice. The really compelling need to write her is that on this very special night I have felt the need to be close to a living being, someone who can relate to others why we did what we did in and out of court.

In no time they had gotten rid of me. I was struck by her condour. Sazan says he will ask for a cigarette. Sazan, Jimba and I were the bosses.
