    I did not watch the play am just reading about it on the website as am looking for some other information, but this is a very good idea. we need to sensitize people to see the link so that they do not think that slavery existed long time ago and is over yet today it does exist in other forms. Thank a lot.

      As followers of Christ under the charism founded by Lavigerie, we had to do something on this account. We believe that the more people are informed the less they will be affected by this changed evil. In our various apostolates, we encounter people or rather citizens who are not at all informed. We vow to continue to disseminate this information to the one by one we encounter. We thank as well the province and in particular the sector of Malawi for having confidence on us. Zikomo kwambiri mwakoma nonse.

    All went well and appreciated by all. However, TV Luntha was a let-down because they came late for the show, and when they arrives they had forgotten the films at their guesthouse. Mike Mawelera
