Download Thats Life: Michael Matatu at Large epub
by Damilola Odusote,Shamlal Puri
One day when God was distributing wealth, Michael Matatu stood patiently in the queue but the Almighty forgot to give him any. He was born a down and out African condemned to a life of poverty in a mad, mad world where the rich and the influential have the money to enjoy enjoy life. He dreams of luxuries that he cannot afford. He lives from day to day using ingenious methods to eke out a living. This is the story of an ordinary African fighting for survival in a society where the rich become richer and the poor become poorer. Matatu regales you with his humorous look at life and ways of earning a livelihood. As you laugh reading his antics, you come across a tale of injustice and inequality. This book is a collection of columns written over 20 years by journalist Shamlal Puri under the pen-names of Michael Matatu, Malimoto and Akili Mingi, appearing in Drum, Africa's leading magazine, and its sister publications True Love and Trust. Puri formerly lived in East Africa but is now settled in London.
