Profesa-Haft-Leo-Wala-Kesho ni mwenye kipaji cha kusema na kuwavuta watu – hasa vijana. Mhusika huyu anatumia kipaji chake kutetea na kupinga ‘mkwamo’ katika Dunia ya Tatu – ikiwemo Afrika. ‘Mkwamo’ huo, ulianza mwanzoni mwa ukolonikale na kushamiri katika ukolonimamboleo.

Mashetani Wamerudi ni tamthilia inayoleta mivutano pande mbili: upande wa mashetani na vibaraka vyao, na upande wa vijana na wazee wanaochachamaa.

Tamthilia hii ina mchovyo unaosimamia maana mbili: maana ya kijujujuu yenye lugha ya kificho, na maana ya pill yenye kuleta lugha ya ukinzani na vijembe ndani ya lugha ya mtindo wa usasa, inayoipa hadhira mitazamo mbalimbali kwa wasomaji. Katika mtindo huu, kung vuta nikuvute, mtindo unaoburudisha na kuhuzunisha, inayorambwa ndani ya ‘asali chungu’ na utamu wa mchezo wa sitiari, ishara, mafumbo, usambamba, kejeli na mgao unaofuata mapigo ya ushairi na uwazi wa nathari.
