  1. Congratulations to the heroes of literature in the world and I really appreciate the kind of efforts they are making to make the whole world a global village. I have hopes that I shall join the world of authors of literally works very soon. I therefore give special thanks to our prominent lectures for considering the new faces of writers in this Anthology and their capabilities have been fully realized for example Kenya’s Goro Wa Kamau has really shown the world that he can really do well in this field when given humble chances to do so I really like this story “when the Sun Goes Down”. It moves the reader in all dimensions both emotional and appealing and by the I even recommend that let the KNEC use it in the setting of main examinations to make students read it more and more so as to know the kind of world we are living in; Full of stigmatization, hatred and individualism .
