“Culture” is the set of customs, traditions, and values of a society or community, such as an ethnic group or nation. The method of human communication, either spoken or written, consists of the use of words in a structured and conventional way. A system of communication is used by a particular country and community. The novel recounts Kenyan people’s fight for independence from British rule. The village of Thabai symbolizes Kenyan society. It is depicted as a community whose inhabitants are astonished by the discovery of a betrayal of the Mau Mau movement. The author analyses both English and African languages to promote the revolutionary movement that fought for independence in Kenya.
