The great meeting of the Mujang family takes place three days after Tebene's arrival in Dik. That morning Tebo, Tebene's uncle, offers a prayer for protection and guidance for the family gathering to the ancestors. By nightfall all the family members have arrived Tebo's compound. The gathering begins with food and drinks served with each person having the right animal part they are entitled to.

   The meeting begins with Ben-Tasi, the eldest member in the family, offering prayer to the ancestors soliciting guidance and protection from the gods. He does this by rubbing the seven sacred stones in the ritual trough.

   He welcomes all and sundry and thanks them for sacrificing other things to attend the meeting. Top on the agenda, he announces, is when and how to give Mujang his late brother a befitting burial to avert the calamities that have befallen the family in various dimensions. He equally expresses his gratitude to Assi for sending his son Tebene to attend the meeting in his stead; a thing he had never done before, let alone attending a family meeting. He declares that the meeting will be an opportunity for the family to discuss about the family land Assi has abandoned at Njimewi.

   Asoh seizes the opportunity to openly demand of Tebo, before the whole family, to confirm or refute the rumours that circulate about the sale of the land. Tebo tries to shut him up but Asoh insists he has a right to know the truth because Assi is his blood brother. This results in a bitter exchange of words between Tebo and Asoh to the extent where Tebo insults Asoh that the latter is impotent and should not bother about land which no seed of his will ever inherit. On his part, Asoh tells Tebo that his two daughters had been fathered by someone else. Ben-Tasi's timely intervention brings an end to this verbal encounter.

   As the meeting continues it is agreed that the final burial ceremony for Mujang will be in six months time, in the dry season. As the successor,  Assi is expected to bring a bulk of the provisions. Tebene thinks this is too heavy for his father and suggests that his father's opinion should be sought in this matter, but he is asked to only take the message to his father. By the end of this meeting responsibilities are given out to everyone in the family, the fathers, mothers, sons, daughters and in-laws for each person to discharge come the day of the funeral.

   After this meeting Asoh visits Fon Jiggang and informs him of the land issue with a mind to have a reward from the Fon for his vigilance. Teboh on the other hand visits Mbaku secretly that night to find out if the buyer was still bent on acquiring the land for it seemed the matter had taken an epic dimension which he fears will cause future problems.
