Businesswoman’s Fault

Set against the restless background of Nairobi’s corporate world, these seven stories deal with a diversity of issues and show emerging challenges facing Africans today especially in their struggle to survive, peopled by shrewd businessmen, corrupt Government technocrats, shady conmen and Okang’a Ooko's own particular brand of nasty women.



Bengaman tells the story of a benga guitarist fighting to beat the odds in his own way. As a leader of music freaks in Kisumu's nefarious darkness, Otis Dundos encounters upsurging whirlpools of survival, exploitation, greed, feuds, and revenge. Despite all the hysteria, he makes a fairly good case for extraordinary achievement backmasking in benga music.


When You Sing To The Fishes

Guitarist Otis Dundos is back in Kisumu. He is back for some unfinished business. He is searching for sanity and happiness. Happiness? In Kisumu lives the woman whose unfulfilled love still dwells his heart. But the moment he steps into Kisumu, he is thrown into a nightmare of intrigue, frustrations and stark terror. His mind is too bamboozled to even think.

After the tragic accident, Rabby's world is shattered. He is broken by circumstance, unable to deal with reality he cons his way around Kisumu trying to find a new way of living, make sense of the truth and learn lessons along the way.


The New Girl In Mombasa

When the double-minded The New Girl In Mombasa finds Salvation, he takes matters into his own hands. He lives a life of captive religion as an eccentric Christian, forcing all around him to accept Jesus, trying to enforce his radical messages. But his zeal is his biggest undoing. All the trappings of Christian divinity fail. This isn't a story of renewal. It’s the story of dark extremes of an eccentric faith. It’s a story of dark ugly evil in the hearts of men.
