‘Dictatorship is rampant in Kafira.’ Write an essay to show the validity of the above statement - Betrayal in the City – Francis Imbuga.
The dictatorial political system of Kafira is an epitome of many African governments. This kind of government, which is very conservative, is characterized by oppression to human rights, both social and political. This is clearly seen in the text, ‘Betrayal in the City’ where any individual who tries to speak his mind is either jailed unconstitutionally or is killed.
When they found the Pearl of the World, Juana and Kino are excited and hopeful of a better life. Write an essay to show what happened to Kino’s life after the discovery. - The pearl by John Steinbeck
When Kino finds what is considered the greatest pearl, he believes life will be so good for his family. He plans to sell it and use the money to pay for a church wedding for himself and Juana, to send his son Coyotito to school, to buy the family new clothes, buy a new harpoon, buy a rifle and a lot of other things unfortunately, all these dreams and expectations are killed by the extreme selfishness that drives most of the towns people to want the pearl for themselves.
