Original Title: Speak Memory Speak'Speak, Memory, Speak' is primarily concerned with Azaria J.C. Mbatha's life prior to his emigration to Sweden in 1965. We describe this work, 'Speak, Memory, Speak', a collection of Azaria Mbatha' stories, at this stage is 'construed or idiosyncratic personal histories'. The stories are auto-ethnographic too, because Azaria J.C. Mbatha has adopted elements of the colonizers' ideologies, whose first language is African, yet have adopted the occupier's language – English to engrave his story in the occupied country. Mbatha is one of the colonized subjects, undertaking to characterize himself in ways that engage with the colonizers' own terms. He must publish and sell the book via the colonizers' conditions of negotiation.
