In Imagination of Poets: An anthology of African poems, three African academics and creative personalities organize an African poetry festival and invite poets from the continent who are lovers of music and African culture to participate. As it is expected, an African festival is multifaceted: it is full of mirth and dance: an ensemble of vibraphones which produce words of acclamation and criticisms. It is an encyclopedia of events that hinges on the poetic expressions of Afro-poets. The editors have put in print a symphony of poets. Whose voices echo from Africa and Black world; drawing from the rich idioms of African languages. Which shape words, and images that are expressed for ease of communication among the poets in the English language. The themes of the poetry in these anthology areas varied as they are the authentic to the peoples of this continent. They touch on the demographic issues, the environment, Literacy, disease, poverty, violence against women and children, family, religion and political intolerance, and peace among different African communities. 'The editors have masterfully arranged these poems according to themes viz: socio-political, femininity and womanhood, love and romance, religion and faith, culture and tradition etcetera. The festive covers transformation and reforms in the new century, society, economic issues, and the inevitable transition from life to death. The poets at the festival are held by the editors on a long rein and remain unconstrained, in the manner in which they reflect on issues of disaster and tragedy in a philosophical way. Poetry is the best medium in which campaigning against human vices and, as it were, the medium is the message:

WANAMBISI, PROFMWESELIMONICA.  2004.  Mweseli Monica. A STUDY OF OKOT P'BITEK'S POETRY.. Nairobi Africa wide Network. October, (REFEREED BY PROFESSOR CHRIS WANJALA LUKORITO). Abstract

Okot p'Bitek, a novelist, sociologist, philosopher, theologian, footballer, dancer, and above all human being, is internationally recognised as one of Africa's finest poets. He is the author of original poetry, translations of traditional literature, anthropological studies, and other essays. Edward Blishen writes: The biographical facts are themselves remarkable. He was born in 1931 at Gulu in Northern Uganda, and was educated first at Gulu High School and later at one of the most high-flying of Ugandan schools, King's College, Budo. He went on to read education at Bristol, law at Aberystwyth and social anthropology at Oxford: returning to Uganda, he lectured at the University College at Makerere. This academic versatility was matched by considerable athletic skill: among other achievements, he played football for Uganda. A drummer and a dancer, he founded an annual festival of African arts at Gulu. For a while he was Director of the National Cultural Centre in Kampala. From 1952 to 1954, Okot attended a teacher training course at the government training college, Mbarara. While at college, he wrote and produced a student opera. When he completed the training, he taught English and Religious Studies for three years at Sir Samuel Backer's School near Gulu. He liked singing, and was choirmaster at the school.

WANAMBISI, PROFMWESELIMONICA.  2001.  Mweseli Monica, "DAISAKU IKEDA'S LIFE": AN ENIGMA, A PRECIOUS JEWELL" A chapter in a book entitled DAISAKU IKEDA AND AFRICA REFLECTIONS BY KENYAN WRITERS. PP. 86-95 edited by Professor Henry Indangasi and Masumi Odari Nairobi: University Press. Abstract

This book is an epic account of life, touching on diverse facets of existence with the Buddhist answers to the riddles of life and those provided by modern science towards the same or similar riddles. In this book, Ikeda catches and conveys to us the impression that living a fulfilling life is attainable, and that the splendour of living such a life has an immutable value that transcends the bounds of the physical death. Fleeting between the past, present and a possible future, the book wrestles with the giant headaches of humankind through a systematic explication of the nature of the cosmos and life, the Buddhist view of life, and the question of life and death. All this is done with the exactitude of a physician carrying out a heart surgery, and with the eloquence of a young man wooing a fair maid. On the whole, the book reduces the recurrent headaches of man to quite curable ailments, no more serious than the common cold or constipation. With respect to the nature of the cosmos and life, the author sinks his teeth into such concepts as the body and the spirit, man and nature, eyes that can see life, the riddle of time and the essence of the cosmos. On the body and the spirit, the author addresses first and foremost, the strange phenomenon of life as it manifests itself in empirical situations
