Who still remembers Abdoulaye Mamani? Militant and determined trade unionist, journalist, committed writer,he fought all his life for the freedom of the peoples andthe independence of his country, Niger. A life of hope, struggle and exile, at the heart of contemporary history and the decolonization movement of Africa. Today the politician seems to have disappeared from the official history of Niger, but the man of letters continues to survive, beyond the borders, by the writings he left. This man was my father. By following in his footsteps, twenty-three years after his death, I rediscover little by little with his history, the one of my country.
