day i invited achebe to taifa hall

Last year the Nigerian writer Chinue Achebe passed away. For some people this passing on, one year ago, is a good time to bring back memories of an encounter with the man himself.

One of these people with memories is Henry Indangasi from Kenya. When he met Achebe he was the chairman of the Literature Department of the University of Nairobi.
