Public Lecture: Superstate Africa in the Literary Imagination



On a continent rife with impunity and corruption, the key rationale for Superstate Africa is to protect the institutions of Africa’s nation-states – ranging from presidencies to public agencies – from capture by home-grown colonists, and to liberate state resources from the grip of a few families and cliques to better serve Africa’s 1.3 billion citizens and 3000 ethnic peoples.

In this paper, Chuma Nwokolo, writer and advocate, draws on his latest novel, The Extinction of Menai, as well as other works of African literature to make a case for the superstate. He also draws on over three decades of experience as a lawyer to lay out a legal framework for it
