Winnie Daughter of Azania by Ade Ajibulu
What happens if kidnappers
also get kidnapped?
To save her mother and her community, a 16-year-old Azanian girl embarks on a journey that will make her into a kidnapper. Winnie is the only daughter of the late community hero Nelson Mapuka, a man whose love for Azania led to him sacrificing his life for the community. However, her mother’s weird illness makes her embark on the journey to find help, after all hope disappears.
Along the way she falls into the clutches of Jacky and Kurt, professional kidnappers who are desperately in search of a lady around her age to fulfil the wish of a frantic Mayor, Honourable Dagado, and his witchdoctor. Just when Winnie thinks death is the only way out, the unexpected happens, opening doors for revenge and revealing secrets that will shock the community.
Like her father, the love of her people is built into Winnie, but will her non-racial love and bravery be enough to save her mother, as well as a young white lady, from the community hoodlums and kidnappers?
