Tchanaze

Author: Carlos Paradona Rufino Roque

Translator: Jethro Soutar, Sandra Tamele   Cover design: Marie Lane  

Part traditional fable, part thriller, Tchanaze is a tale of magic and witchcraft, but also a portrayal of a world where traditions are preyed upon and superstitions exploited to hide evil, yet all-too-human truths.

Tchanaze is the pride of Sena, a virgin and a beauty coveted throughout the Zambeze region. Mbemba is deemed ugly in comparison and fears she will never find a husband. Her mother employs a witchdoctor to expel the evil spirits from Mbema and put them in Tchanaze, who subsequently
dies. But word reaches Campira, a shaman from Sena, that Tchanaze is alive and living in a village further up the valley. He takes Thomossene and Suplera, Tchanaze's parents, on a mission to rescue their daughter and liberate her from the curse. But to do this they must rely on the fearsome satanic witchdoctor, Phanga.
