Okonkwo: When I was first exiled, all I did was plan my return to Umuofia. However, now I want to make up for the seven years that I've wasted by building a bigger compound and new huts for two new wives.
Even though Okonkwo was depressed with the actions of his oldest son, he is confident that his other children will not disappoint him.
Okonkwo: I cannot believe he is still staying with this church.
Ezinma: To please father, you need to do what I am and denying marriage proposals so that I can get married in Umuofia.
Okonkwo is confident in his other children such as Ezinma, who is also trying to encourage Obiageli.
When Okonkwo returned to Umuofia, things were very different. The churches won over more converts, white men established law in Umuofia, and they built a prision for those who broke their laws.
LAWS: _________ ______________ _________
White Man: Go arrest him right now!
Native: Why me, you could do it yourself?
The white men even employ the natives as "court messengers" to do their dirty work.
Obierika: We haven't because we don't want white intruders to destroy our village like what happened in Abame.
Okonkwo: How come you didn't just try to use violence to overthrow them?
