The very best of the world’s best researchers have discovered a way to develop Africa: Way Omega. Now Africa’s heads of state are at a summit to approve it. If they do, it promises Africa will start developing immediately. Unknown to the summit are aggrieved conspirators plotting to defeat Way Omega and replace it with a rival strategy: Path Alpha. Their path, they say, is the only way. Should the summit still follow Way Omega, or make a U-turn? Fathers of Nations is a satire on contemporary African politics.
