Sunset on Polygamy free pdf In Joseph R. Alila's first anthropological novel, SUNET ON POLYGAMY, marital cultural lore and spirituality combine to breed a tragic confusion in a land faced with a deadly new disease epidemic, with public debates raging as to whether the killer is ancestral chira (curse) or Acute Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). In this work of fiction, Joe Ochom, a young man testing his verbal skills in the art of seduction, soon realizes that corralling an educated girl (Megan) requires more than adorning his high school blazer in the marketplace. He proves cowardly-a weakness his principal competitor, polygamist Jim Kokech, is quick to exploit. With his attention on Megan, Jim suddenly faces a revolt from his wives. Felicia, the first wife, resolves to punish him- she locks him out of her bedroom, just when they must celebrate the planting season as the principal "spiritual co-owners" of the home. Jim's pastoral calendar comes to a sudden halt-reminding him that the Luo "Mikayi"-the first wife-is key to a healthy spiritual life in a home. The home enters a conjugal lockdown. However, the crafty second wife, Milka, comes to the rescue: she engages Jim in a believable romantic ruse that fools even Felicia. Wrought with jealousy at her female archenemy, Felicia yields to Jim-prompting a stampede for access to him. He is not having fun. Baby boom! A year later, Felicia looks on in anger as the home welcomes three newborns, with Maria, Milka, and Nyapora presenting a child each to their shared husband. Felicia has reached menopause, but instead of embracing her new physiological reality, and aging gracefully as the matriarch of her home, she becomes angry at Jim and her co-wives. Struggling with a broiling bout of jealousy at her co-wives and nursing unpredictable desires of her husband, Felicia brews one immoral "romantic" mischief after another and nearly kills her husband while trying a cultic remedy to her marital problems. Depressed, Felicia flees to the Big City to escape the shameful spectacle she has become among the women of Korondo Ridge. Korondo Ridge still has no rest: Gina-a young widow who has just delivered the body of her late husband, George Amolo, from the Big City-refuses, to the utter dismay of elders, to welcome any man into her bed, arguing that her husband died of "a strange new disease." The elders refuse to listen, asserting that George died of his father's "chira" (curse), which only the very wise among them could cleanse. Amolo protests, saying Malaria killed George. Concerned for the spiritual health of their Korondo House, the elders eventually convince Gina to enter a one-night "marriage" with a "Jakowiny" (a vagabond) "to settle George's restless spirit." Reacting to the "technical marriage," men troop to Gina's house to proffer their applications, believing the vagabond (like the Biblical scapegoat), has wandered off with the "chira" that killed their fellow warrior. Tragedy! The killer malady the elders call "Chira" is AIDS-the killer the Luo aptly nickname "Ayaki"-I loot you. Gina soon develops loose morals and dispatches one man after another to his grave, their wives in tow. Tragic: Ayaki kills people and "chira," with which it shares symptoms, gets the credit. Gina's misleadingly healthy look, beauty, and longevity only add to the tragedy. Felicia returns to Korondo Ridge amid the Ayaki epidemic in the land, but even the epidemic has not changed people's ways: men still embrace polygamy- men still inherit sick widows, and sure, Jim has married young Megan, capping his conquest over Joe Ochom (the narrator). But as the Luo of old said, the ferocious buffalo provides the hide for a brave warrior's shield-Jim dies holding a toxic jewel, leaving behind a bitter lesson in vanity and immoderation.
