The African ruling has begun to fade and so has their laws. The democratic laws now have an overruling control but the bloodline has not run cold. And where there is influence, there is control.
The royal families are still kept safe and certain parts are still controlled by the king. My father but that doesn't mean there aren't challenges. Each clan close to the bloodline reaching for power. Though all has been peaceful for years, greed and impatience begin to overflood.
Especially since I've come of age and I chose to defy my very tradition, which concludes to death and shame.
