Ominous Clouds is a collection of poems that have specifically been selected from previous works by the author. The collection comprises poems with the theme of Kenyan politics. Issues of governance, negative ethnicity, and political violence are tackled.
The poems have been translated into Finnish, Norwegian, and Greek. These multiple translations enable the poetry to travel around the globe and beyond the readership in English, the original language in which they were written. As the translators have noted, the translations offer readership in the said languages to learn about the country Kenya as captured in the poetry.
