Nina - Betrayal in the City Characterization and Role

Nina is Doga’s wife and mother to Jusper and the late Adika.


She mourns the death of her son and wonders why people would kill him.
She is heart broken by the people who come to interfere with his grave and she cannot stand it.

The death of her son sends her into mourning. She begs Mulili to allow them to allow them to carry on with the shaving ceremony.

She is concerned about the whereabouts of Jusper when she finds that he is not guarding the grave.


She weeps besides her son’s grave


When Mulili refuses to allow her to carry out the shaving ceremony, she threatens to strip naked and cause him blindness.


She feels that the evil done to her son;s grave should not be hidden. According to her, one cannot outwit their ancestors.
She suggests to her husband that they report the evil to the sub-chief. ‘It would be wrong for us to sit on this evil.’ (pg 3)


She tells her husband that they need to commit the day on God’s hands.
They sing and later she invokes a prayer.


She is concerned about her son Jusper’s safety when they fail to find him at Adika’s grave. ‘But where is he now? Doga, my heart fails me. (pg 2)
