“Crisis…! What Crisis?” is a collection of Gado’s (Godfrey Mwampembwa) best cartoons from the 2006-2011 period, enriched by anecdotes about his experience as an editorial cartoonist and political commentator. Some of his most powerful work provides perspective and analysis on Kenya’s 2007-2008 post-election crisis, one of the darkest times in the country’s history.

“Humor is hard work, but its reward is in the license and creative space it provides. It is a typical weapon of the weak because it is unconventional in the manner that it speaks truth to power. Its insidiousness lies in the fact that it is difficult to suppress.”
