Jalada Translation Issue 02
Prof. Wọlé Ṣóyínká

Project Lead: Wanjeri Gakuru

The second anthology in Jalada Africa’s Translation Series was launched on October 1st 2023, the same day Nigeria marked 53 years since the proclamation of independence from British rule.  We selected this special day in honour of our Featured Author, Prof. Wole Soyinka who hails from the nation.  

Jalada Translation Issue 01:
Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o

Project Concept and Editorial Coordination: Moses Kilolo

Following Jalada’s groundbreaking emphasis on translation in African languages in its 2015 Language Issue, we reached out to Prof. Ngugi who graciously agreed to send us a previously unpublished story for our inaugural Translation Issue. Professor wa Thiong’o is uniquely placed to be the first distinguished author and intellectual featured in our periodical translations issue. He has, for many years, been the most vocal proponent in publishing in African languages.
