Who is Ojiugo in Things Fall Apart?
2 Answers | Add Yours
Ojiugo is the youngest and the third wife of Okonkwo. Okonkwo's temper causes him to beat her during the Week of Peace, a festival in which any form of violence is prohibited. This is just one of a number of violations Okonkwo is guilty of and which contributes to his exile to Mbanta, his mother's homeland. Ojiugo is also the mother of Nkechi.
Okonkwo's youngest wife. the one who he beats for leaving her hut to go get her hair braided!
