The African Dad

He is the head of the family. Makes the decisions and you obey. Has a specific chair in the sitting room. A cup and plate ascribed to him only. 

He loves his children, looks at the girl-child like wealth-brideprice. The boys are more liable to education than the girls. He decides who takes his little girl.

He is served a particular piece when chicken is cooked, eats the larger portion. No wife of his talks after he has spoken. She is only the mother of his children and best cook.The African Dad, so communal but loving.
