Fatboy and the Dancing Ladies
Ferdinand Mlambo, the youngest boy ever to become senior kitchen toto at State House, is in big trouble. Not only has disloyalty to Kuwisha's corrupt Life President cost him his prestigious job, but he has also been stripped of his name. Word goes out across the slums: henceforth he will be known as Fatboy. With the help of Titus, leader of the notorious Mboya Boys gang of street children, Mlambo sets out to recover his name - and his dignity.
Affectionate, funny and sharply observant, FATBOY AND THE DANCING LADIES is a satirical tale of East Africa and the resilient patrons of Kireba's Harrods International Bar (and Nightspot), presided over by the irrepressible Charity Mupanga.
