What a beautiful journey From the seeming encumbrance of metered school life in South Africa the to the sights sounds and people of home Binyavanga details in his short story the rediscovery of home one’s roots one’s people in a very descriptive witty engaging and emotive style Discovering Home is 13 months of a trip back home laid down in an enjoyable 4 chapter short storyIn fact he says little about South Africa except the farewell party the goats on their roads that look at him in defiance and that Cape Town is mellow in relation to Nairobi which is like a shot of whiskey We are immediately taken into the journey home musing about the miracle of life being the ability to exist for a time in defiance of chaos This is attributed to the fact that he could have missed the flight due to hangover issues postponement and the tickets almost not materialising The lesson is inserted like a bookmark but one must not miss itPhrases swell becoming bigger than their context and speak to us as truthThe journey starts in Kenya Binyavanga makes a commentary on the social and inadvertently the political issues in his home country From the traffic jam and the Matatus which are unwittingly Kenya’s mobile art galleries; to the relentless cart pushers and women selling fruit on the roadside who despite their country’s failing economy manage to push on with a smile Wainana’s imagery strikes a point easily For example the man wearing a Yale University sweatshirt and tattered trousers He is stuck in the jam with his wheelbarrow competing for space with cars However when he sees a friend across the road he smiles heartily as if life’s problems have all been solvedIt’s impossible to miss the different tribes of Kenya being highlighted plus their interactions The Maasai the Kamba the Kikuyu the Samburu are shown as the different people that give life to the variety of Kenya Who works harder who loves better are all issues that come together not in a competitive way but a complementary way Wainana is able to poke holes at things like female circumcision without necessarily being offensive but causing considerable thought and reflectionThere is nothing wrong with being what you are not in Kenya just be it successfullyIt’s unmissable the fondness and estrangement when it comes to community relations In Africa the party is a party but when the morning comes there is an awkwardness about having shared so much with a stranger the previous night Nonetheless the joining factor is the food the dance the music of community I guffawed in laughter as Wainana took to describe the Dombolo danceTo do it right wiggle your pelvis from side to side while your upper body remains as casual as if you were lunching with Nelson MandelaHe takes time to engage Maasai land’s beauty from an African point of view This is much unlike the romanticised view from much of the West where elephants and rolling hills are the heroes When he talks about Maasai land he talks about the people mostlyI enjoyed Christmas in Bufumbira the final chapter Wainana journeys through Uganda to get to his mother’s home in Bufumbira talking about Ugandan hospitality neatness and the different tribes he meets Wainana’s view of Baganda women is like seeing oneself from another’s eyes Sure there are many inventive Baganda women but much of culture has painted them as always waiting on their husbands Wainana brings to note that a lot of Baganda women are industrious as they are attractiveHome in Bufumbira is sombre yet not tear jerking There is a control with which Wainana writes He talks about the events in Rwanda the people who have been through it their sacrifices gently putting them on a pedestal without telling it on the mountains despite the fact they are in the mountainsThis book is a story of fortitude hope and the camaraderie of home It is a view of Africa unbiased by the usual African themes You will not find deep tragedies only history nostalgia and a new found respect for homeIt’s again another enjoyable piece from the Caine Prize Winner Binyavanga Wainana This little novella can be easily overlooked as a lightweight piece However there are many little gems buried in between the pages Part travelogue part novel about self discovery and identity it is beautifully structured and written with great skill Most importantly it has a universal message that I believe resonates well beyond national bordersForget about any other Kenyan writer this is the guy to watch out for Binyavanga is a master of description The geography in this story is vivid than the characters in it but then again wasn't that the point of the story? I enjoyed reading about some familiar places Home indeed Reading Binyavanga got me wondering what took me so long His writing is descriptive with raw African authenticity He has a way with words He neither romanticizes nor poverticizes I made that word up Africa as many are wont to do He instead tells the story with a heartwarming honesty that leaves one yearning for of his writing Wainaina has a great sense of humour His description of the night out in Mwingi dancing to ndombolo was hilarious His writing is natural and descriptive An enjoyable short story my thoughts on it It's a lovely piece The description of scenery however was excessive and did not contribute much to the story
