Mulili

Mulili is Boss’s cousin, a farmer and boss’s right hand man. He takes a bullet for Boss though not literally.

Ambitious/greedy/inconsiderate/merciless

Mulili can do anything to get to power. To begin with, he refuses to let the old couple to carry their hair shaving ceremony. Secondly, to make sure Boss only trusts him, he spreads seeds of discord against Kabito. He wants everything in kafira that’s why he influences Boss against Kabito.

He does not consider the plight of the old couple but mercilessly goes ahead to kill them.

Malicious/self-centered/inhumane/evil

He doesn’t feel anything when he orchestrates the killing of Nina, Doga, and Kabito. In fact he is proud of his job that he refers back to them with pride. He asks Boss whether he (Boss) still remembers what had happened to the Old Couple.

He is ego blinds him to the reality of things that in the presence of Boss, he readily says the crimes that he purports Boss has committed. He is unafraid of betraying boss as long as it saves his skin. He also betrays Jere.

He plants false allegations against Kabito prompting Boss to warrant the death of Kabito.

Rude/disrespectful/arrogant

He disrespects Nina and Doga and blatantly refuses to give them the permission needed to carry the hair shaving ceremony.

He disregards Nina’s threats as mere rhetoric when Nina threatens to strip naked and show them her nudity.
