“The Diamonds of Kamituga” cartoonist Séraphin Kajibwami is currently participating in a writing residency in Bordeaux. As part of the AAD project Bukavu Bubbles, this comic book integrates HIV/AIDS prevention messages, into a humanitarian thriller. Having discovered “The Diamonds of Kamituga” during the 2011 Angoulême Festival, the French Cultural Mediation Agency for the Sahel States invited Seraphin to be part of the Aquitaine’s Biennial Festival of Sub-Saharan African Literature.
