Like Ferdinand Oyono's Houseboy, this book fiercely satirises the colonial situation through the eyes of Africans. Meka, an old village has always been loyal to the white man. It is with pride that he first hears he is to receive a medal. While waiting for the ceremony, however, Meka's pride gives way to scepticism, so that the dominant thought is how long he must wait before he can relieve himself. At the same time his wife has realised that this medal is being given to her husband as compensation for the sacrifices they have made. The events following the ceremony confirm Meka's new estimation of the white man
