where fear abides, man is robbed of his true identity
00:00 / 01:22


This preparatory sketch for Nya’s work “Mburuchusi,” exposes the impenitent nature of oppression.

The two figures, with burnt heads, trapped in gross darkness, and with their hands stretched out in a helpless, lackadaisical and beggarly manner clearly depicts how oppression keeps a person, a people, a nation, a race or society in a perpetual cycle of complaining, dependency, despondency, discouragement and utter confusion.

In essence, oppression is a by-product of a stronghold and a stronghold is built and sustained by the wiles, lies, accusations, allegations, insults and criticisms systematically launched and repeatedly hurled by a well-governed system under the control and influence of the spirit of fear.

The print was produced on the occasion of “A true leader abides in his identity,” a book that employs x-rays from Nya’s work, “Heir of Inheritance,” to reveal how the spirit of fear employs oppression to distort Mankind’s inherent leadership image.
