Obierka was completely justified in his statement. The District Commissioner and other made it their life's work to change the culture of these people. Okwonkwo's actions were a direct result to the death of his culture and his desire to hang onto it. Things fell apart, and a man killed himself. His people were not allowed to touch him, they could not bury him, and he had lost all honor. A well-honored and respected man took his own life and would be remembered or not in the worst way.
