The story of Nyango: The Girl with Healing Powers captures the life of a young girl named Nyango, born with the ability to heal. Her mother died while giving birth to her and she was raised by her grandmother, Sumediang, who was a renowned healer in their village. Sumediang’s inability to cure the son of the village’s chief led the chief to banish her from the village. The decision to expel Sumediang from the village – and with her, Nyango – led to major changes in the young girls life.

The book explores how Nyango and her grandmother struggled with life after they departed their village. It portrays how Nyango tried to reconcile her life as a healer with growing up as a young girl.

Duone Ekane was born in Buea, in the southwest region of Cameroon. She hails from the Bakossi tribe, which is a Bantu-speaking tribe. The story, The Adventures of Ajale and His Friends, was inspired by her nephews and nieces.
