The Tragedy of Mr No Balance

2008, author(s)-editor(s) Kwo Victor Elame Musinga, Roselyne M. Jua

The Tragedy of Mr No-Balance spotlights corruption. Musinga skillfully blends humour and simplicity to expose its depth in Cameroon. Mr No Balance asks job applicants to either ’throw water up’ or ’oil my lips’. The playwright uses the illiterate Bih to expose his corrupt practices and to demonstrate that the downtrodden of the society can contribute to the fight against corruption. He proposes an effective police network and an impartial judiciary for corruption eradication. This play is a must watch for anyone who is frustrated because of corruption and hopeless about its eradication.
