CHARACTERISATION IN BETRAYAL IN THE CITY

Regina

She is the sister to Mosese. Her landlord is Tumbo. She is in love with Jusper.

Loving/caring

She loves her brother a lot that she feels guilty of betraying him by testifying against him although she was beaten into doing it. In trying to show amends, she tries to talk to government officials like Tumbo to organize for her to meet with Boss and beg for her brother’s release.

Submissive/cautious

She warns Jusper against his behavior of being overly critical to the government. She also pleads with her brother Mosese to give in and accept to act in the play to buy his freedom. She submits to the beatings and agrees to testify against her brother.

Religious/self-righteous

She refuses to bow down to Boss’ demands and runs away.

Weak

Mosese describes her as weak because she suffers heavily under the guilt of her being part of the reason he is in jail. She also bows to pressure and begs as if Mosese was guilty for his release.
