A Time to Reconcile

A Play for Children

by George Njimele

A Time to Reconcile is a comedy with a serious tone featuring Beta, a young girl, whose choice of marriage goes contrary to that of her parents. Her suitor, Chato, hails from an enemy tribe, and her parents see her choice as a sign of bad luck. The conflicts that ensue uncover a brilliant and tactful portrayal of preoccupations rampant in today’s Africa in general and Cameroon in particular. The involvement of the tribal chief, the Man of God, the two enemy tribes and family members, results in a twist in the plot. This twist brings about reconciliation and a successful marriage between Chato and Beta. The Man of God, another suitor to Beta, a symbol of what is popularly known as the “African Independent Churches”, reveals the role parents usually play in determining the spouses of their daughters.
