Decolonizing african literature : a question of languages ? a case study of ngugi wa thiong’o

The debate over the issue of decolonizing africain literature revolves around two major questions : the language to be used in the writing of such literature and the critical criteria to be applied while appraising it.the present paper attempts to estabilish that a “genuine” decolonization of african litterature can only be made possible throughthe use of an afrocentric rather than a eurocentric approach in the study of any african literacy work. This is , of course , due to the cultural uniqueness and to the socio-historical contexts of the african folk tradition in the attempt to decolonize africain literature.
