The Throne of the Ghost

by Modou Lamin Age-Almusaf Sowe

In four hundred and eighty moons ago or thereabout, when Africa was a huge farmland, there lived a king in a place known today as Niamina Dankunku, who was endowed with dignity as a result of his wisdom and unquestionable character and well known within the Senegambia, Guinea and Mali region. He had two wives and six children, his first son Ishaq was to succeed him upon his death, but Sheriff, his second son, and his mother Awa, led Ishaq astray and planned to kill him. Maimuna, the Jinn who loves Ishaq, was afraid to tell him. But Mariama, a friend of Maimuna, also a Jinn, stepped into their relationship and made things more difficult for Maimuna... Athough the play is entirely fictional and any resemblance to any person death or alive is coincidental, it, of course, reflects some of what is typical in human affairs today – jealousies, intrigues, rivalries and compromises.
