Title

Kurwa na Doto: maelezo ya makazi katika kijiji cha Unguja, yaani Zanzibar [Kurwa and Doto: a story of life in a Zanzibar village]

Description

This is a “local color” novelette that is another very early work of Kiswahili prose. In its depiction of life in a typical Zanzibari village, it is perhaps more informative of local customs than of notable literary value. The two main characters, Kurwa and Doto, are sisters who look very much alike but are diametrically opposite in their characters and lifestyles. The plot that unfolds between them centers on the conflict between traditional and modern values.
