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. This work uses qualitative research to situate the two books under analysis within the African context of leadership. Since this work posits that classed society is precipitated by the urge in leaders to be like their former colonial masters through accumulation of wealth to the detriment of the masses, it also sees class struggle for material needs which often leads to violence between the two economic powers as a prerequisite for a changed and free society. This work therefore explores the various struggles within Wizard of the Crow and Matigari particularly by the oppressed to expose and ridicule the nonchalant attitude of their leaders toward them and to create a society that recognises their need. 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.

have therefore defined literature in different ways.For instance, Rene Wellek and Austin Warren
in Theory of Literature (1949: 94) define literature“as a social instituti
