Thus linking the death of Munashe's comrade to the killing of the sellout as crime
and punishment (for her presumed betrayal of the guerrillas to the Rhodesians) is
forced and unconvincing. The woman cannot defend herself; her infant is an
innocent victim and the manner of killing particularly cruel. More importantly,
Munashe cannot repress his own awareness of these facts. In When the Rainbird
Cries the white man is the originator of violence. The settler, represented by the
sadistic ...
