Eva and Leo are young undergraduates caught up in war. The duo had been unaware of the uprisings in the city of their choice. Now, they have to navigate falling in love with each other, denying it, and surviving the war. But their story is nothing compared to the war itself or to the loss that Mafeng encounters.
Our hero takes us through a narrative of what it feels like to be a victim of sectional hate and fanaticism. He loses his family to the cold hands of war, and encounters a young chap venturing into the city. Although Mafeng did not intend it, his listener's enthusiasm wanes on hearing the tales of what happened beyond the forest, at the place where they were now approaching.
Mafeng had just been bereaved in the wake of the lingering war that had just wiped out an entire village. It was a war with several faces. A war that is so domestic in its approach that it engulfs only one city and never spreads. A long coming war trapping people, some of them unsuspecting, at its arrival. The intensity as with most uprising is more astounding abroad than it is at home.
Mafeng is caught up in his grief and recounts to us a story of hate, which now makes co-existing almost impossible, and the gruelling aftermaths of fanaticism.
Calling Death is a story of pain induced by sectional hate and which turns out to be totally unnecessary or at least avoidable.
Follow Mafeng as he recounts to us a true story of the Jos crisis.
