If you have ever wondered where the human obsession with the apocalypse come from, if you ever wanted to know why the world did not come to an end on 21 December 2012, as prophesied by the Mayan calendar and propagated by paranoid Apocalyptomaniacs, then Coup d’état in the Land of Zep Tepi: a progress report, is for you. But why?
A Story Huner out on a hare brained mission from Juba, capital of the newly independent Republic of Southern Sudan, to Lake Mwitanzige (named – Lake Albert in colonial lingo), stumbles upon a legend somewhere in the depths of Central Africa. This will in due course turn out to be one of the most controversial discoveries to jump from the mists of mythological time into the 21st century. To be precise, on the border between the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda, a legend speaks about the disappearance of a tribe, called Bachwezi, into Lake Mwitanzige.
This exposes information concerning goings on in Ancient Egypt, around 1450BC. Story Hunter and Buiteboer’s research reveals that the Bachwezi had fled from Egypt into the depths of Central Africa. They fled from Pharaoh Akhenaten, who had out of the blue imposed a religious singularity on the ancient lands that bore a multiplicity of gods, demigods, and god-like Pharaonic rulers.
The publication of this story, in turn, upsets a delicate balance of forces in the realm of the heavens. It speculates that the Bachwezi may have found, in Lake Mwitanzige, a portal by way of which to transmigrate, and take the rebellion against a prophesy of their doom – expressed by the singularity – Akhnaten – off-world. Did they make a quantum leap of faith, like Gilgamesh, the demigod King of Uruk, to post-life outer-planetary realms where the gods reside?
After the Uganda discovery the report accounts how, while on a side-journey through Mozambique’s Zambezi valley where the Cahora Bassa dam lies, Stiry Hunter is ambushed by a strange old man. He shows Story Hunter how, in pre-colonial times, the Songo people built a tower to reach heaven. This causes Story Hunter to be catapulted into an off-world realm where it becomes clear that all is not Kosher, Vegan, or even Halaal in the post-life off-worldly realms. Will it turn out that the Bachwezi may in fact have staged an insurgency, or are plotting a coup, in the Land of Zep Tepi?
Volume One and Two of Coup d’état in the Land of Zep Tepi – a progress report, exposes, for the first time, how a legend from Central Africa explains the extreme violent obsession humans and their religions have with catastrophes, apocalypses, and the like. Be it said as well, the pages of this report, hastily typed by Buiteboer in the course of one very hot South African summer night, also sheds light on the question as to why the world did not come to an end on 21 December, 2012, as apparently foretold by the Mayan calendar.
Did the Bachwezi have a hand in staying the course of the ticking time bomb hidden in the codes of the Mayan calendar? Will we meet RA and Quetzalcoatl at the other end of dawn?
