ken saro-wiwa book competition opens

He was not just a writer, he also was an activist and he paid for it. He paid with his life. 

The Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) has asked young Nigerians to write a review of any of the books written by Ken Saro-Wiwa. This is a good way of keeping his legacy in the national memory and heritage.

There is a fair amount of money to be collected at the end of the literary race. N100,000 is the amount. I am happy the prize money is not set in dollars or pounds.
