Short Stories, Tale Africa

Rebabedi (Finale)

  By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa   Ayanda is packing shoes in the twins’ walk-in closet. Both boys are obsessed with shoes that’s why their mother gave them a whole room to put them in. She’s been repacking all their things since they moved out from home a week ago. “Don’t you want to see Mbali’s TV debut?” Her husband […]

City of Love (1)

  By Emmeline BIsiikwa, Uganda I used to believe in love. So much so that I thought my falling in love would be like a fairytale. I would be in Paris, traveling or on holiday and then I would meet my price charming. It didn’t turn out that way. At all. For starters, I didn’t fall in love when I […]

Protecting My Own

  By Damali of Kyanjja     It is not every day that you come across people who speak openly about guarding their stuff. I do not mean material possessions. The other day, I told my girls about Aaron. Little things. Like how he pulls out the chair for me when we go out eat at our favourite takeaway. He […]

Rebabedi (14)

  By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa Watching soccer isn’t really my thing, today is a special occasion. Mbali was asked by the Zebhola soccer channel to fill in for their sick presenters. Well; I have to watch my friend’s television debut. I was excited for her when I heard that Ayanda gave her permission because I know Mbali is a […]

Consequences (Finale)

  By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda Peter couldn’t believe what was happening. How was it possible that he appeared on the cameras yet he wasn’t even there? This must be what they meant by karma. Could it be that all this was happening because he had hurt Sue? He wished he hadn’t done all those things to her, she had always […]

Rebabedi (13)

  By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa Girls like me were not meant for happiness. I lay there listening to Ayanda and Mbali and felt as if I was dying. I imagined myself jumping from the roof of a 20 story building and carelessly floating to meet my death. It felt like I was watching over the lifeless body lying there […]

Stranger Eons (1)

    By F. C. Stanley A thousand stains had his gift inflicted itself on him. And then a thousand more. Each time the line of events was the same: an argument, borne of some desire or deception, the decision to go to war, followed by a sharpening of swords, a buffering of shields, a whisper of plea to the […]

Skinless

  By Damala of Kyanjja Honestly, I do not know why people project their issues on the rest of us who are very comfortable in our skin. Like what have my undies got to you with you? Bwankya came by yesterday, after about a week. Nothing unusual about that. Sometimes I travel and do not get to see him as […]

Rebabedi (12)

  By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa It hasn’t even been a week since I ran away from home and I already miss my family. Don’t get me wrong; I love Kagi and living with him is such an adventure, but I can’t enjoy myself knowing my mother is probably going crazy worrying about me. I speak to Poni almost everyday […]
