No matter what Adela’s real considering, her scholadelassumptionistic comportment is a brilliant lesson in insults and in double-talking or lies that Momany has additionally needed to examine from the ladies with whom he has childrens, and particularly Schola (the perfect girl he suggestion he finally married) who arrived in Canada in 1999 with a signification of relations that absolutely defies either Africa’s and Canada’s. but, as a few confused critics need to know, one hundred twenty five Momany is understood to have stubbornly refused to leap to judging B from A’s acts, together with ignoring the Anglophone-Francophone stuff? Flaviqueenism: Is It Sane Never/Always to pass judgement on B from A’s Acts? Flavie (the universal legislation spouse), like Queenta (the clever nurse), may possibly simply characterize the truth that Momany has realized to not pass judgement on B from A’s acts simply because most folk in his sneakers that experience no longer performed such studying might hardly ever are looking to even discuss marriage back (let by myself sponsoring the individual) after “the Scholastica spectacular relatives definitional mess in Canada” (Fossungu, 2013a: a hundred and fifteen) that's now topped with addictive ‘family’ blackmail and nosing for info in Momany’s regard.

First, that she has the sort of brief or no reminiscence for stable deeds, that is very common with the scheming and ungrateful forms. who's chargeable for making her daughter and them all for that topic what they're this present day? This girl used to be right here no longer even checking out what had occurred among her daughter and the guy yet had already taken her daughter’s gossip and lies (if now not even really her personal) as gospel fact and used to be spreading them round like dry season bush hearth. I relatively remember that Momany doesn't like judging anyone from another’s activities. yet might a person who says the following ‘Like mom like daughter’ be flawed? i'll hence proceed discussing ‘Not Judging’ via flaviqueenism; with the nurse who got here first earlier than 126 the universal legislation companion that inappropriately or flaviqueenically stuffed where the 1st didn't comfortably or christickinologically occupy. The clever Nurse Momany had simply arrived Nwangong (his village) from Canada in June 2004 for an unplanned journey to take care of his unwell delivery mom.
