357pages. in8. Broché. En un quart de siècle, il n'a publié que trois romans. Pourtant, depuis Les Soleils des indépendances, son premier livre paru en 1975, Ahmadou Kourouma, né en 1927 en Côte d'Ivoire, est considéré comme un classique de la littérature africaine. En attendant le vote des bêtes sauvages fait le portrait d'un certain président Koyaga en qui il est facile de reconnaître bon nombre de dictateurs africains. Au cours de six veillées, il écoute ravi ses louanges chantées par son griot. Koyaga est trop imbu de lui-même pour s'apercevoir que ces éloges sont ambigus et dissimulent à peine des critiques féroces. Mais le livre de Kourouma n'est pas un pamphlet politique. Il démonte avec subtilité les contradictions entre un discours technocratique souvent creux et le profond attachement aux croyances d'une Afrique plusieurs fois millénaire. Contradictions sensibles dans la langue étonnante du romancier qui s'emploie, non sans humour, à exprimer en français la logique et les structures de la culture malinké dont il est originaire. En attendant le vote des bêtes sauvages a obtenu le prix de Livre Inter 1999. -Gérard Meudal
