Smouldering Charcoal by Tiyambe Zeleza belongs to the immediate post-colonial African literature, which includes such texts as Ayi Kwei Armah's The Beautyful Ones are not Yet Born, and Ngugi wa Thiong'o's A Grain of Wheat. More specifically, it belongs to those collection of works which exposes the disillusionment of independence and questions the integrity and vision of the post-independence leaders, usually the first presidents, who became harsh, corrupt, and crueller.

 

Neighbours: The Story of a Murder: Set in three households in Maputo, this is the story of how a South African conspiracy to infiltrate and destabilize Mozambique creates tragedy for ordinary people. It weaves together present events and past memories in the drama of a few short hours.
