A short story titled A Body Made for Sin, written by Alexander Nderitu, has been published by IHRAF Publishes, a Pushcart Prize-nominating literary journal. IHRAF (International Human Rights Arts Festival)'s online journal is a growing platform for writers to submit poetry, creative nonfiction, short fiction, essays or any other format that comes from the heart, and focuses on social and activist themes.
A Body Made for Sin is the first short story Nderitu has released this year. The 4378-word crime story was inspired by the still-unsolved death of a college girl that grabbed national attention in Kenya for five years. Alexander Nderitu is also the author of the short stories Harvest of Blood (about the 1994 Rwandan genocide) and Live From Garissa (about the 2015 terrorist attack on Garissa University College). The later stories were published in Israel and the UK, respectively.
