    “If your baby is raised by you alone how will you convince her that marriage is good, what marriage advice will give you her when she will be of your age? your so-learned generation is a great threat to marriage and the subsequent generations,” Ajuma was furiously dogged to drive her point home.

    The Midnight Sun is a beautifully woven story about two young Teso lovers-Ejakait and Nasirumbi. They meet when they’re both in college, but their love is soon tested and they break up at a time when Nasirumbi need Ejakait most.

    The story is so rich in Iteso culture. I literally felt like I was drinking Akipi from Teso land. The author brings out heated issues surrounding girl child education, single motherhood, feminism and marriage.

    What does an educated, single mother in a deeply rooted traditional culture got to do? Agree to marry anyone because it is shameful to have a child and stay unmarried? Leave her child to her parents because the man intending to marry her is doing her a favor and doesn’t want the burden of bringing up a child he didn’t sire?

    The role of education in marriage is also greatly contested in the book. At some point I felt angry at the author’s perspective, carefully placed in dialogues. I won’t tell you why. But you can get a copy and make your own judgement.
