  2. Ole Kaelo, father to Taiyo refuses to allow his daughter Taiyo to travel to Mombasa with the other youth selected by an FM radio station for a music extravaganza. To him participating would be like engaging in prostitution.

  4. Ole Kaelo betrays Resian. He openly shows his resentment to Resian. Constantly rebuking her for even the slightest of mistake she makes. He hates because he expected a boy child not a girl child. This leaves Resian with a low self-esteem and fearful.
  5. Olarinkoi, who is occasionally accommodated by the Ole Kaelo’s and is even though he is not part of their family, later betrays the Ole Kaelo’s when he abducts Resian with the intention of eloping with her. This is betrayal to a family that had hosted him.
  6. Oloisudori betrays Ole Kaelo. Though they were close business friends. Oloisudori blackmails Ole Kaelo so that Ole Kaelo has no option but to marry off his daughter to Oloisudori.
