Family compound

There are three huts in Ngotho's family compound on Nganga's land: one for each of his wives, and one for Ngotho himself. The majority of the action at home takes place in Nyokabi's hut, and it is leaving that hut to go the few meters to their own, after curfew, that causes Njeri and Kori to be arrested. It is in Njeri's hut where Kori and Boro tell the story of their escape from an unknown dilemma and journey to return home, and Ngotho also returns to the compound after he is tortured.

In the first part of the novel, another version of the family compound exists on Jacobo's land, before the family is evicted. It is there that Ngotho tells his family the story of Gikuyu and Mumbi, and where Nyokabi first gives Njoroge the chance to go to school.
