‘Bwabwalala’ goes to Mzuzu


After a successful outing in Lilongwe early this month with a political satire titled Bwabwalala, Waz Arts invades Grand Palace Hotel in Mzuzu on Sunday.

Actor Jeremiah Mwaungulu, who is part of the cast said Thursday they were ready for the Northern Region.

“It is now the turn of theatre lovers in the Northern Region to sample the production. We have had massive rehearsals to tighten the play and we have left no stone unturned,” Mwaungulu, who is the director of the play, said.


During the premiere at Golden Peacock, several people including Anti-Corruption Bureau director Martha Chizuma were impressed with the production which tackles issues such as corruption and gender based violence.

Renowned Nation Publications Limited (NPL) journalist Suzgo Chitete has revived his acting carrier and who acted previously he also scripted the political satire.

Chitete, who previously acted in wanna Do Ensemble before he got busier with his journalism career, said they were ready for Mzuzu.


“Mzuzu is more like home ground and so, as a cast we are ready,” he said.

Chitete said the political satire was inspired by the happenings on the political scene between 2019 to date.

The play, Bwabwalala is a family saga centred on two brothers – pursuing common interest yet with selfish reasons. They have not been close before but until an opportunity presents itself, they find a reason to forge an alliance.

The chase for common interest also creates unity of purpose in a seemingly broken family. But, eventually, greed, individual lust for power and wealth gives birth to betrayal and hate.

The other members of the cast are Mary Chilongo, Dipo Katimba, Brenda Mselu, Rodgers Siula, Macdonald Sanga and Pleasant Theodore Banda.

In another development, YDC Theatre will tomorrow afternoon stage their play The Journey at Lampeduza at Jacaranda Cultural Centre in Blantyre.

The group comes back to the limelight after staging Chipasupasu recently adapted from George Orwell’s book Animal Farm at the same venue.
