Abstract:On 10 November 1995, Nigeria murdered Ken Saro-Wiwa, the prominent author, television producer, environmental activist and leader of the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (Mosop). This act of barbarism by the Nigerian junta is but one side of the Ogoni tragedy. The other side centres on the activities of Shell, the Anglo-Dutch oil multinational that is an accomplice in the murder of Saro-Wiwa and his Mosop colleagues. This article contains a number of tributes to Saro-Wiwa. A poetic memorial by the Malawian poet Felix Mnthali is also included.
