The play, Nothing But the Truth by John Kani, has two characters (Themba and Sipho) who are part and counterpart to one another. Sipho is the main breadwinner for his family and is an assistant librarian who seems to never get promoted. He does what is right and is a man of integrity. Thema, however, is widely known and does not always remain ethical. He seduces women, usese people, and is a social and economic parasite.
