We would ALL rather spend time reading and watching Muzngu stuff all in english.
Ngugu Wa Thiongo is just another nyeuthi......ata tuambia nini ?
We dont want to decolonize our minds...we want to westernize kabisa kabisa and become more like Muzungu in order to gain the respect of Muzungu thar we crave so much.
