Kwathu Drama Group has said their new play Ana Akumpanda which was expected to be premiered this month, will be staged on Mother’s Day.
The group’s director, Eric Mabedi, said the play has to undergo processes before it is staged including being scrutinised by the Censorship Board.
“What we do as Kwathu is that, before premiering any production, we have to take the production to Censorship Board and, sometimes, the process takes time but we should have Ana Akumpanda on Mother’s Day,” Mabedi said.
On Monday, Mabedi Tuesday, Mabedi told The Daily Times that they would be staging another old play Tilolelane as they wait for the new production.
Mabedi hailed people for their continued support to the group.
“I always say that we are where we are because of the support people have given us,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mabedi has called on drama groups in the country to strive to bring out the best if they are to win the hearts of people.
“We should continue giving out the best. The key should be quality and, that way, we will build our audiences,” he said.
The last time Kwathu had a performance was last month when they staged another old play titled Kulira kwa Ana.
