Tale of an African Woman II

by Thomas Jing

With great enthusiasm and optimism, Yaya leaves her village of Yakiri for Yamade, the nation’s capital, to attend university. However, her dreams of a blissful life quickly fade. Yaya’s journey begins on treacherous roads, patrolled by gun-toting and corrupt gendarmes and policemen, forewarning the challenges ahead. Upon arriving in Yamade, she narrowly escapes being robbed of all her money. The capital, far from the glamour she imagined, starkly contrasts extremely wealthy neighbourhoods with poverty-stricken, pestilential shantytowns. Forced to reside in a township specifically for underprivileged students, she is exposed to many dangers and becomes victim of two instances of sexual assault and contracts cerebral malaria. Despite these immense hardships, she remains resolute, navigating treacherous social and political landscapes to graduate from university with a law degree. She joins a female organization fighting for women’s rights, transforming it into a powerful political party. Her goal: to dismantle the oppressive system that nearly broke her. Through teamwork and strategic maneuvering, she rises to become the president of her country, Mungo. Yaya's journey stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of foresight, courage, and determination that characterizes the struggles of African women in the face of injustice.
