    The year is 1750. As he makes is way to the capital to pledge allegiance to the new leader of the Buganda Kingdom, Kintu Kidda unleashes a curse that will plague his family for generations. From that moment on, each of Kintu's descendants will find themselves caught up in the struggle to break free from the curse and escape the burden of their family's past.
    First published in Kenya to critical and popular acclaim, Kintu is a modern classic, a multi-layered narrative that reimagines the history of Uganda through the cursed bloodline of the Kintu clan. Divided into six sections, Kintu starts in the 1750s and follows the misfortunes of the Kintu clan over 250 years, blending Ganda oral tradition, forms of myth, folktale and history with biblical elements to look back at the history of Buganda Kingdom and trace the birth of modern Uganda.
