For Jacob, moving to Afronia means opportunity and love, but a terrorist attack could signal the end of everything he has worked so hard to achieve.
A handful of politically connected elite families control Afronia, but for many, and especially rural villagers, the future holds nothing but poverty and despair. President Solomon’s authoritarian administration has been mired in corruption, cronyism, nepotism and increasing fear ever since riding roughshod over Parliament. He has removed all checks and balances to his power, and he is neither accountable nor transparent in how he rules.
Jacob comes to Afronia as a business consultant, and falls head over heels in love with a stunning Afronian work colleague. Thinking he has finally found peace in his life, his new world is suddenly shattered by the Independence Day terrorist attack which kills hundreds and sends the country into turmoil. Seeking the truth behind the attack, Jacob discovers more about the way Afronia works than he ever wanted, and what he learns could lead the country on the road to civil war.
Crying for Afronia is a story of power, greed, love, betrayal, corruption and the quest to uncover the truth.
