One man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter
In Escape from Afronia, the country was moving steadily towards becoming a failed state and many Afronians were forced to take the unimaginable risks of migrating to Europe in their quest to find peace, dignity, and most important of all, hope. They left behind an Afronia where public speech was absent, the media muzzled, civil society and the judiciary defunct, and the security forces a law unto themselves. Terrorists were increasing their attacks and, the army, secret police and Counter Terrorist Unit were responding evermore forcibly through brutal reprisals.
Afronia is reaching the point of no return and President Solomon is practicing scapegoat politics, intimidating, manipulating and arresting political opponents; his only agenda, personal survival. In a last unexpected gambit, the President disbands the regime that has kept him in power for twenty-six years and calls for multi-party presidential elections.
Dying for Afronia is the story of election rigging, exiles returning, the dark arts of international espionage and, friends witnessing whether Afronia will descend into civil war or move into a bright new future.
