'Uprooting The Pumpkin'      

“...The title 'uprooting the pumpkin' comes from a poem called Song of Lawino by Uganda writer Okot P'bitek it is the story of story of Lawino, a woman whose husband, Ocol, throws her out of their home and brings home a more Europeanised woman as a wife. Ocol despises Black people and their traditional ways and has adopted Europeans values. Lawino uses the proverb, 'the pumpkin in the old homestead must not be uprooted' to put her point across, because pumpkins are a luxury food and to uproot pumpkins, even when you are moving to a new homestead, is wanton destruction. She is not asking Ocol to cling to everything in his past, but rather not to destroy things just for the sake of it…I love and respect my Zambian and African heritage but also appreciate the ideals of fairness and equality espoused in a multicultural England. This Blog is about trying to bridge that gap and find ways to ensure that Africa does not continue to lag behind the rest of the world. As a feminist, I am particularly interested in the plight of women on the continent.”
