“We crashed into a car that had crashed into another car that had knocked a car off the highway. The car behind us also crashed into our car. Thankfully we are all alive and well.”

Nyanzi is in Kenya to promote her latest book – a poetry collection called “Eulogies of My Mouth: Poems for A Poisoned Uganda!” She has two other poetry books to her name.

The author was heading to Nakuru from Nairobi to share her poems with Tribeless Youth at Ubuntu Creative Space.

On September 13, Nyanzi wrote a poem for newly-sworn in President William Ruto advising him: You better be good to Kenya, you Ruto!/You better be good to the people in Kenya.
