What happens to Kumalo as he tries to find a bus to Sophiatown? Who helps him find his destination?
1 Answer | Add Yours
In my copy of the book, this happens on pages 18 and 19.
The first thing that happens to Kumalo is that a young man cheats him out of some money -- one pound. He helps Kumalo to find the bus station, but then he tells Kumalo to give him the money and he will go buy Kumalo's ticket for him. As it turns out, you do not pay for your fare until you are on the bus.
Kumalo finds this out, and gets help to find where he is going from an elderly man whose name we later find out is Mr. Mafolo.
