Chinsinga

 

Chinsinga is a violent and stubborn man. He has been in and out of jail. It takes little to make him angry, and he ignores advice to mend his ways. He even abuses his aged parents who do not know what they can do with him. In his performance, he will smash a clay pot of water over his head to cool himself down, but then flies into another rage, throwing the shards of the pot at the spectators.
