Mutanda: The Quest for Namondo
Namondo, the lone child of Chief Mutanda, the Ruler of Bokondo; mysteriously disappeared. His stepmother Ekanem Efonko was implicated and was to face a capital punishment for disingenuously associating with Atim Okpoebot, the nefarious and obnoxiously despicable core entity suspected to be holding Namondo hostage. Ekpo Mosufe a renowned hunter, and an adversary of Atim Okpoebot, rescued Ekanem from the death penalty. Mutanda and company with Ekpo Mosufe left Bokondo to commune with Atim Okpoebot. Meanwhile, fifty gallant men felt concerned about the safety of their ruler and his crew. They left in search of them. Unfortunately, the men ran into trouble on the way. Mutanda and his men met with Atim Okpoebot, and she told them emphatically that she wanted Ekpo Mosufe, the renowned hunter of Bokondo as her own price before she could contact Anansa, the water deity to release Namondo. Atim Okpoebot got her deal. She then gave Mutanda a detailed list of bizarre, and extremely rare items to obtain for sacrifice to Anansa. Atim Okpoebot, somehow meddled with Queen Ofonso Bara, the daughter of Bara Mba, and had to abscond from that jungle to escape the fury of Bara Mba. Ekpo Mosufe found, and was able to liberate the fifty gallant men. They all had a joyous return to Bokondo. What then became of Mutanda in securing the bizarre items with the hope of rescuing his son Namondo? It was a real saga.
