We are looking for a man with a hard heart; a heart of stone; a heart of a real man. One afternoon, a twelve-year-old girl goes missing near her village. The local police tell her mother and the villagers she has been taken by a wild animal. Five years later, a young government employee Amantle Bokaa finds a box bearing the label ‘Neo Kakang; CRB 45/94’. It contains evidence of human involvement in the affair. So begins an illegal and undercover struggle for justice and retribution. A powerful story of corruption, The Screaming of the Innocent challenges the romantic representations of Africa. Botswana High Court judge Unity Dow continues the fight she began with Far and Beyon’, to give her country a strong voice in the bookshelves of the world.
