In the drama "Fiela se Kind" by South African playwright Dalene Matthee, Benjamin Komoetie faces an external conflict of identity and belonging. Benjamin is a young man who was raised by Fiela Komoetie, a strong, loving, and independent Coloured woman who took him in when he was a toddler after finding him lost on her doorstep. A major external conflict Benjamin faces is being taken away from Fiela and her family by the government authorities when they believe that he might be Lukas Van Rooyen, a White boy who went missing around the same time Benjamin was found by Fiela. The authorities' decision is based on the assumption that a child of White ethnicity should not be raised in a Coloured household. Benjamin's conflict intensifies as he is forced to leave his loving family and the life he has known to live with the Van Rooyens, who claim to be his biological parents. As he tries to adapt to this new life, he grapples with the question of his true identity and where he truly belongs. This external conflict affects his relationships, interactions and sense of self. Furthermore, during the apartheid era in South Africa, the conflict of racial and social prejudice is another external conflict faced by Benjamin. Even though he has been raised in the Coloured community, he has to come to terms with the discrimination and racial boundaries that existed at that time, and navigate the challenges that come with it. The societal norms and authorities' decisions emphasize the systemic challenges faced by individuals like Benjamin during that period.
