After ordering Kairaba, I thought like the initial complaint from the first people to place their orders, mine too will take a longer period. However, it only took one day for the book to arrive.
Thanks to Tomdom publishers.
The first impressions of the books is that of the rich cateloques of pictures in the book. From IM Garba Jahumba, Sanjaly Bojang, Kwame Nkruma, Senghore, Serief Ceesay, Bai Nyassi, SM Dibba, and the many other memorable photos. Jawara indeed did a remarkable thing.
The chapter spread is also such that, one can start from the section you prefer, however, I will commence from the first chapter Kairo to chapter 33 retirement.
I hope the book can give us an insight into politics in those days, enabling us to compare where things went wrong, why Jawara was soft on the corrupt officials, how the coup was possible and the lesson to learn.
I have put aside all others books to focus on fulfilling my curiosity on Kairaba. I am past half way of reading Mandela's long walk to Freedom and the few pages of former British Prime Minister John Majors autobiography, but until i finish Kairaba, ales.
