Rejection and Crisis

Show Summary Details


The spread of the Roho religion went through ten critical months in its fight for survival under the control of the missionary as a colony due to political dominance. Because of Mango's limited freedom from his exile, Lawi, his nephew served as the preacher of their faith resulting in an unfounded faction being formed between their followers and their quest for supremacy of the religion over the other. The persistence of the preachers and the followers went from preaching to hunger to seclusion, away from Owen and the missionaries, to being beaten and attacked by other villages and the continuous growth of the opposition leading to the imminent death of Lawi and Mango in their unwavering drive with the Roho people to leave the Anglican Church and start anew.
