The Siege Of The Shwedagon by Michael Thuo

KShs900.00 KShs800.00

Ruddin is a self-styled revolutionary with a heart for vengeance. His ethnic minority people have been displaced from the place they have called home for generations-Myanmar. Armed with nothing more than a tattered map and revolutionary ideas, he embarks on the most treacherous journey of his life.

The Shwedagon Pagoda is a significant symbol in his onslaught against the junta regime he is hell-bent to depose. It was a childhood fantasy ‘must-visit’ imposing stupa. But now, the almost impossible to penetrate fortress is his perfect hideout to nab his nemesis-the young leader of Myanmar and commander of Tatmadaw.

The young leader is his presumptive father-in-law but the young U Thwe despises the Rohingya, the ethnic minority in which Ruddin belongs. Repatriating the millions of the displaced people from Bangladesh, back to Myanmar, would be a tall order. Where do you even start? How do you even gain entrance to the gilded stupa and execute your mission with military precision? What would be the coincidence that the young leader would be on a spiritual pilgrimage to the pagoda and by happenchance ,you are poised to nab him?

This make-believe fictional account strains the bounds of credulity, invariably offering a glimpse of hope to the millions of displaced Rohingya people. The story is unreal. The people are real. The scenarios are real. The places are real. Reality is twisted. Imagination is real……and impossible is nothing!
