The Cockroach Dance

Authored by Meja Mwangi
Edition: 2

Dusman Gonzaga shares a squalid apartment with human misery and poverty and cockroaches. The old building belongs to a wealthy slumlord with a heart of stone and Dusman's neighbours include garbage collectors, street hawkers, criminals, wise men and mad men and numerous faceless ones. Dusman attempts to organise them to boycott paying rent, in order to force the landlord to lower rents, but finds he himself standing alone. Then he hatches an unscrupulous plot so devious his neighbours can't back out of the imminent confrontation.
