When Kumalo speaks to the chief, he tells him that he has been to Johannesburg, where he saw many of their people. He suggests to the chief that they should try to keep some of the people in the valley by caring for the land before it is too late. The chief finally says that he has thought of these matters for some time, and he will talk to the inspector again soon. Kumalo replies that it is sad to look upon the place where they are teaching it, but the cattle are dying and children are dying. The chief reminds him that the suffering is because of the drought, but Kumalo says that, dry or not, for many years it has been the same. The chief finally dismisses him, and Kumalo returns to the church. He seeks the headmaster of the school, but is not more successful with him. The headmaster is polite and obliging, but he cannot answer Kumalo's question of how to keep the children in Ndotsheni.
