African Son


When his father dies unexpectedly back in Uganda, a popular foreign student’s plans to prove his own independence and brilliance are completely shattered. Being an only son, Simon ‘Sim’ must now take the mantle atop a family haunted by a decades old secret and a legacy tainted by his father’s decisions.

Sim’s course of action will leave devastating consequences for his friends and loved ones, including an older woman he has fallen madly in love with, as he stops at nothing to prove to his unsympathetic ancestors that he is a far better man than his father ever was.

In his debut novel, Wambalye Weikama draws from his own experience to bring to life a sensational story of obsessive ambition matched against unyielding cultural expectations.
