This study, “Satire in Ngugi wa Thiong‟o‟s Wizard of the Crow and Matigari focuses attention on the marginalised members of the society whose expressions of dissatisfaction satirise the various activities of their leaders meant to pauperise them perpetually. This work uses Socialist Realism of Marxism to focus on how through class struggle, leadership ineptitude is ridiculed in Africa as portrayed in Wizard of the Crow andMatigari. This is because Ngugi sees class struggle, where the proletariats demanding for their right from the bourgeoisie as a way of overcoming classed society.

It finds Wizard of the Crow and Matigarias example of satire that project the oppressed as a catalyst of change and a means of addressing inept leadership in postcolonial Africa

social-economic theory that champions the economic rights of all oppressed people in the world.
