Kimathi Tito has it all. As a child of the revolution, born in exile in Tanzania, he has steadily accumulated wealth and influence since arriving in South Africa in 1991. But even though everything appears just peachy from outside the walls of his mansion in Bassonia, things are far from perfect for Comrade Kimathi. After a messy divorce, accelerated by his gambling habit and infidelities, he is in danger of losing everything. With his company, Mandulo, struggling, Kimathi’s financial future hinges on landing a huge tender in the Soutspanberg – to provide coal for South Africa’s struggling power sector. But the ties that exile has woven are not always as strong as one might think, especially when there are millions of rands at stake. And now, to top it all, Kimathi’s seeing ghosts. Sometimes what happens in exile doesn’t stay in exile.
