CHAPTER 28

It is the day of sentencing, and an interpreter gives the Judge's words in Zulu so that all may understand. The Judge reviews the entire case. As you read, follow the judge's reasoning carefully. How would you have ruled if you were in his place? The judge says he is compelled to release Johannes and Matthew, although their previous criminal association will be investigated. As for Absalom, the judge admits the truth of Mr. Carmichael's arguments about the defects of society, but he must uphold the law.



He sentences Absalom to death by hanging. Absalom falls to the floor sobbing, a woman wails, and an old man cries, "Tixo, Tixo." We know that has to have been Kumalo. The young white man and Msimangu are so grieved that together they ignore the color customs, both of them supporting Kumalo as they leave the courtroom.
