review 1: Siku Njema is a popular Swahili novel written by the renowned Kenyan author, Ken Walibora. The novel was published in 1996 and saw Walibora become an instant household name in Swahili fiction. Written in the first person, the book deals with the life of a young man, Msanifu Kombo who is born in Tanga, Tanzania and who faces family hardships with his single mother, who is a talented singer of taarab. Being a child born out of wedlock does not make life easier for him as he is chided by his schoolmates in a culture that frowns upon illegitimate children.
review 2: This was not a voluntary read as it was an assigned 'set book' for our Kiswahili Fasihi class back in Form Two. It was well written, we took the emotional journey with the main character until the end b
... moreut our protagonist, Msanifu Kombo, had one flaw: he was too perfect.The boy seemed to have no faults. Way too cool, calm and collected even when it was unnecessary, nothing seemed to shake or faze him. less
