Kwathu imparts acting skills to friends in Phalombe


Kwathu Drama Group on Saturday staged their newly released play Aneneri at Highest Rivonia in Phalombe.

The performance was part of imparting acting skills to Friends of Kwathu.

The group’s veteran actor Charles Mphoka said they staged the play in Phalombe after being approached by Likulezi Aids Project which calls itself Friends of Kwathu.


“We were requested by the group to teach them acting skills because they mostly spread different me s s age s about Aids through drama,” sai d Mphoka.

Mphoka, who wrote Aneneri alongside musician Billy Kaunda, said apart from imparting acting skills to their friends, they were also happy to perform in Phalombe.

Project Coordinator for Likulezi Aids Project, Henry Julius, said through Kwathu’s performance they had learnt how to stage professional productions.


“Kwathu is a professional group and one of the popular drama groups in the country and so we felt it wise to utilise them to train us, show us how they do it,” said Julius.

He said they want to reach out to people with different messages and that drama has always been one of the key channels.

“After watching them perform, now we know how to go about and we should be able to deliver the message in an effective manner just like they do,” said Julius.

Despite the play being staged in Phalombe people from surrounding and distant areas came on their bicycles to witness the production.

Aneneri is Kwathu’s first production this year and it delves into the issue of ‘false prophets,’ who are all over confusing the masses.
