Short Description: In Nzewi Arinze’s Awaiting Trial is a subtle melody of pain, loss and the possibility of renewal in a world full of betrayals and unfulfilled dreams, longings. Things are not always how they seem. Africa has suffered in the hands of the rest of the world who took it upon themselves the civilising mission of a continent they knew nothing about. Now, years after, the after-effect of those adventures still resonate in myriads of terrible ways, with a continent’s leadership still unfocused and the people adrift like a ship without sails. These are the emotions Arinze has dredged up in his poetry. It’s a collection that deserves attention.
