Last Orders at Harrods

by Michael Holman

Charity Mupanga must be a distant relative of Precious Ramotswe, but instead of rooibosch tea there is Tusker Lager and a bizarre encounter with a London lawyer. He's up against a religious shebeen queen, and two street boys. And there's the Aid worker, the journalist, the President, the co-operative banker, and a madman with a bicycle. A joy!

Among the first to realise the marvellous opportunity that chaos and confusion provided were the Mboya boys. Solidarity and discipline, forged on the football field, were their watchwords. Like a coach urging on his players, Ntoto yelled instructions as the Mboya boys made for the city centre.
