Sample text

I had forgotten that there were no buses, at least I had forgotten the boycott of the buses. —Our business is very urgent, said Kumalo, humbly. —This boycott is also urgent, said the man politely. They want us to pay sixpence, that is one shilling a day. Six shillings a week, and some of us get thirty-five or forty shillings. H. Holland —Is it far to walk? asked Kumalo. —It is a long way, umfundisi. Eleven miles. —That is a long way, for an old man. —Men as old as you are doing it every day, umfundisi.

They are tied to particular fictional events, characters and consequences. They work functionally. First, Stephen Kumalo leaves the remote Natal village of Ndotsheni and travels hundreds of miles in a train to the thoroughly (for him) alien and bewildering city of Johannesburg. He searches for days amongst the soulless townships for his son, scurrying from Sophiatown to Alexandra, to Claremont, to Pimville, to Orlando, back and forth, unsuccessful, tormented, tired and depressed. It is during this fruitless endless searching that he encounters the Alexandra Bus Boycott, as we have seen.

The boycott is a kind of analogue of his own emotional and physical journeying that is getting him nowhere. It is a suitable metaphor of frustration for both Stephen Kumalo, the fictional individual, and the actual African workers. It is a crisis point for Kumalo: he begins to suspect and fear the truth about his son. Later, he confirms this: —At first it was a search. I was anxious at first, but as the search went on, step by step, so did the anxiety turn to fear, and this fear grew deeper step by step.
