Never having been colonized by blacks, and never being taught by the Enlightenment to attach a sort of scientific validation to white European lives, Westerners perceived black Africans as throwbacks (degenerates, primitives). This would be comical if it were not gross. Mafeking/Mafikeng (the latter being the original Bantu vernacular name of the place) combines these comic and gross 'ways of seeing' the interlinked lives of Europeans and Africans in a place wedged for a moment of history between 'Darkest Africa', the British Empire and whitest Europe (the Union of South Africa) at the end of the Second World War. Building from the interception of white European and black African cultures, its main protagonists Oswald Lander and Molefe the Kgatla both implicated in the death of a witch turn events to their own advantage. Lander, a British agent, seeks to join the Afrikaner Broederbond for entirely personal reasons, and uncovers a spy; while Molefe negotiates the best for his own culture by ceding his wife to the European.
