Echoes in the Box
by Charles Sambare Arufandika
Zimbabwe struggled before gaining its full freedom together with its current name. There had been protests, political imprisonments, and rebellionall for social justice and for the love of the country that once was flourishing and peaceful before the white man invasion. But Zimbabwe, like many countries around the world, is facing the challenges of the modern age, with economic crisis always looming and moral decay infesting all corners of society.
Echoes in the Box is a collection of poetry of a keen observer who witnessed and experienced that part of Zimbabwes history. Charles Sambare Arufandika wrote about the sweet taste of freedom, the lonely life of a prisoner, painful personal relationships, and finding love again. He also delves on the people who positively influenced many in Zimbabwe, AIDS, and other social issues confronting the country today.
