Trials and Encounters with Colonial Law in African fiction/film/theatre?

I am looking for representations of trials in African literatures. I am especially interested in examples from novels set between the onset of colonization and the early years of independence. Suggestions of filmed representation also appreciated.

Beyond primary texts, I am also interested in critical work on the representation of trials and the law in African literatures/film/theatre.

Many thanks,

Tunji
