You won't progress until you return to your language
Ngugi wa Thiong'o is not the only one harping on the importance of the native language of a writer in his/her writing. Prof Chukuezi is not only a medical doctor, he is also a writer. Indeed, he acknowledges that before becoming a medical doctor he was a writer. He has some dire warning for all writers. Every creative thinker essentially does so in his or her native language. I think he is right in many ways. Anyway, read his words: ENJOY!
