What We Say: A satirical work that explores themes of political oppression and government surveillance. It aims to spark conversations about the importance of democracy, freedom of speech, feminism and the distribution of power.

What They Say: "Spellbinding... this social media-saturated narrative, interwoven with the oral storytelling techniques of idiomatic speech and call and response, makes Bulawayo feel like a pioneer... Glory, with a flicker of hope at its end, is allegory, satire and fairytale rolled into one mighty punch" – Sarah Ladipo Manyika
