Sweet and Sour Milk Variations on the Theme of An African Dictatorship #1 characters ¿ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Asons behind his twin brother's violent death during the 1970s The atmosphere of political tyranny and repression reduces our hero's uest to a passive and fatalistic level; his search for reasons and answers ultimately bec. Africa for nearly a century was governed with the iron hand of European colonial economic interests these ran Africa as though it were a torture chamber Africa has known the iron rod the whiplash thumb screwing and removing of testicles Africa has been humiliated one way or another I am not saying anything new if I add that whether British French Belgian Spanish Portugese or Italian the colonial mafiadoms which on behalf of the civilised world administered the colonies barbarously savagely never considered it expedient to allow the same democratic rights as they themselves had both in their own countries and in their privileged positions as rulers viceroys or governors For the colonies they created a small elite that in a world of make believe behaved as though they were on a par with their European classmates their university colleagues But waitAre you saying that Africa is the same or nearly the same torture chamber as it was when the colonials were here Or are you saying that African dictatorships are but a re creation of the same methods and things these career soldiers learned from their colonial masters during the toughest strugglesOr something like thatStylistically this book is something of a prose poem Nights slither like snakes days break open Politically this is an indictment of the failures of petty despot dictators Mohamed Siad Barre Jaale Siiyad in fact though the plot does not follow history exactly who seized power and formed a military junta with the assistance of China and the Soviet Union based on the ideology of scientific socialism who like the colonials before them cloak themselves in academic and religious morality while carrying out the same barbarisms learned from colonial times Worse still it is an indictment of the people who permit it to happen with inactivity with lack of education to wit the part about the General surrounding himself with illiterates in order to force all security business to be conducted via oral tradition in order that no paper trail be created and beast of burden acceptance There s a wincing exchange that takes place between a butcher and a goat that just wraps up the whole plot in one succinct page the General is the butcher the people of Somalia his goat that he prods threatens mistreats with the knowledge that he s just going to kill it in an hour anyway but he has to remind it of its placeFarah doesn t spare the colonials and he doesn t spare modern nation states who continue to meddle just as hamfistedly if not uite so openly in the political spectrum the Chinese cigarette and match factory the Soviet Marxist help by training the Security forces in KGB tacticsAnd Farah doesn t stop there he also laments the plight of women both as victims of political torture social subjugation and religiouseducational ineuality This is a dense thoughtful book and I think the heavy handed poetic prose is the only thing that keeps you somewhat detached from the abject horror of what he s describing
