Chinua Achebe died!

The only tribute to Chinualumogu Achebe that I read was the elegy by Chimamanda Adichie.

Chinua Achebe was 82.

His last book came at a most strategic time, as though he perceived his death.

He paid his debt.

What more could he have achieved? But his death remains a death and leaves grief behind.

Integrity, Intelligent, Honourable are only a few of the words to describe him.

I pray the Nigeria he left behind rises far beyond her shambles.

I pray posterity will not curse this land.
