John Kumalo's speech reveals him as a prophet, but a corrupt prophet, one who would never  sacrifice his life, nor even sacrifice a week's or a day's income, for a cause. His voice is like a great  bull or a lion roaring in an empty chasm. Dubula and Tomlinson are envious of the power of the  voice, but they realize that Kumalo has no brains and no courage. Earlier John had ridiculed the  people who stayed with the tribe and lived under the control of the chief who did nothing for the  people. But now, with his voice, John is trying to emulate the role of the chief. As the police know,  John will go only so far with his voice; he will retract rather than be arrested. Thus, he betrays the  people who need him because he is unwilling to sacrifice himself in any way and desires only the  power and notoriety caused by his speeches. Msimangu feels that it is perhaps good that John is

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
