Ike and his group of progressive patriots are on a mission to bring political reforms to the town of Anieze. Their resolve to ensure that the common good and future of the community becomes the focal point of governance meet with vehement resistance from the political establishment. A fierce battle for supremacy, violence and bloodletting ensues, enveloping Anieze. The story also explores the town’s rich cultural heritage and tells of nubile damsel swinging to the intoxicating beats of the Atilogwu drum at the Ukwata Festival. The Gathering Of The Tribes is no doubt a beautiful and daringly provocative narrative that will wrap the reader in warmth, intrigue and laughter.
