A Duel with a Dictator may well be a trashcan of rotten African politics. It is a tale of an African dictator parroting democracy. This is a story of intrigue, gross human rights abuses, and political violence within the tradition of African tyrants. But this despot and looter-this omnipotent god, President Wadhabo-must face off with a single-minded opposition activist. In Paula Okappah, we see a determined African woman pitied against a crooked tyranny. A great irony in the twenty-first century is that Western democracies still roll out red carpets for these repressive African pretenders to the throne. It is unbelievable!
