207pp., paperback, Harare, 2016
"With wit and keen observation, A Casualty of Power explores how two worlds collide as modern day Africa embraces Chinese overseas expansion. Mukuka Chipanta's debut novel is wonderfully thought provoking, sombre and dark in places and yet laced throughout with hope." Ekow Duker, author of Dying in New York and White Wahala
"In A Casualty of Power Mukuka Chipanta explores, in an honest and unapologetic way, subjects that societies often prefer to keep buried. This is a pacy, emotive and enjoyable novel that will keep the reader engaged until the last page." Ellen Banda-Aaku, author of Patchwork
Mukuka Chipanta was born in Zambia and grew up on the Zambian Copperbelt. An aerospace angineer and programme manager he currently lives and works in Washington DC. This is his first novel.
