Wilton Sankawulo is another ied, "folklorist" from West Africa-someone offering a relatively gutless and cliche-dependent, new chief-centered, rural saga that could take place anywhere, were it not for a few culture-specific references. There is little to separate "The Rain and the Night" from similar novels that seem to be published mostly because they are the first literary texts from small nations which prefer oral tradition

Sankawulo’s first novel is set in his native region of Haindi. Despite the evidence of some Western influences – guns, denim – there are no signs of any white men around. This is not a how the whites changed my country novel. Indeed, it is set primarily in one village, where we follow, in a relatively low key way, their life. It is seen primarily, though not exclusively, from the point of view of the chief, Kortuma. At the beginning of the novel, his father, Gbolokai, is dying and dies shortly afterwards. Not a great novel but it is well told by Sankawulo and it is enjoyable to have a novel by an African that focuses entirely on the Africans. First published by Macmillan in 1979.
Kortuma succeeds his father as chief of Fuama, then mobilises forces to attack Golaland, the tradtional enemy of Fuama. The spiritual leader of Fuama, Gayflor, opts to lead the army on this campaign.
