The Real President and The Real President II by Noah Kaindama to be launched in SA.
By Lehlohonolo Lehana.
Retired teacher and school adviser Noah Kaindama, is on track for topping the charts and influencing future African leaders. The 65-year-old father-of-four has just released the gripping and thought-provoking sequel, The Real President II: Africa’s Last Line of Defence. And it has already reached number four in Amazon’s Political Fiction chart.
The first novel, The Real President, charts the many perils of Moses Kamawu as he decides to challenge the incumbent tyrant president who has run down his country - a seemingly brave but increasingly dangerous mission. The president is brutal, stubborn and accustomed to ruling with impunity. Yet, drawn into Moses’ irresistible vision, ordinary citizens band together and fight to usher change into their country. It is a must read not only by aspiring presidents but all citizens who are faced with the dilemma of casting a vote to bring about positive change.
The Real President II: Africa’s Last Line of Defence follows the fortunes of Delilah Mashidika as she becomes the first female ruler of Lubanda, a fictional country in Africa. But she also has to battle her own personal struggles as she attempts to steer the African nation towards a vibrant future. The Real President II: Africa’s Last Line of Defence is an authoritative study of a woman overcoming her own demons to become a beacon of hope for a nation.
Noah, admits much of his narrative derived from conversations with his four graduate children. He explained: "The Real President: Africa’s Last Line of Defence examines a possible future where good leadership and citizenship is allowed to flourish in the fictional African country of Lubanda. "It also shows how the struggles that one woman must endure to carry her country forward and bind the continent together. The idea for the sequel was inspired by fans who read the first book and asked for more. The main storyline was inspired by the conversations with my children who argued that something ought to be done to help improve leadership in Africa. I therefore hope these books will inspire the young generation."
"The Real President and The Real President II are therefore aimed at individuals and organisations interested in promoting good governance and African led development for the people of Africa – from political groups, ordinary voters, the African middle class, students, teachers, lecturers and academic departments."
