Mateka is set in the Africa of ratty tribal shields and three-piece British suits; an Africa trying to shake free of colonial masters; an Africa where superpowers prop up military juntas with lavish loans to continue border wars created by those same European allies; an Africa where people starve and children die in the streets.
Having just defeated a brutal dictator to regain the ancestral throne lost to him decades earlier, King Kala Mbazie returns to find his beloved country in shambles. Desperate, the king decides to resurrect the legend of the Mateka, the name given a captured white slave whose presence in the 1400's brought great prosperity to his ancestors and his nation. Unfortunately, the only white man available is sitting in a shed awaiting execution.
This is the story of King Kala Mbazie and John Kinsella and the nation they built together.
