This chapter explores why Tooy's blind brother Sensilo gets upset with the mention of the name of Kwasimukamba. It explains that Sensilo believes that it was Kwasimukamba's revenge that caused his blindness. According to stories, Kwasimukamba was a double agent during the mid-eighteenth century who befriended Tooy's ancestors Gweyunga and Antama. This chapter also mentions that it was Kwasimukamba who taught Antama his most powerful ritual possession, the obia called Flibanti.
