Molosi’s play opens in Canada to international critical Acclaim

Donald Molosi’s award-winning off-Broadway play opened in Canada this week to critical international acclaim.

The play dubbed Motswana: Africa, Dream Again, is also expected to headline the World Play 2020 series.

It was also selected for the Canadian film festival by an academy of theatre and writing experts.

In the play Molosi tells the story of a young nation that is still struggling with accommodating its own ethnic and tribal diversity.

“For the first time in my plays I am engaging with Botswana of today where tribalism is on the rise and a culture of corruption appears to be custom. Are we in a post-Botho time? I speak directly to the average Motswana and I ask for national reflection,” Molosi shared.

The play was first performed off-Broadway in New York City in 2011 and Botswana in 2017.

In 2017 it was published by The Mantle Books in New York City and the same year it began to be taught in several American universities.

“The time has come to look at the past fifty years of this Republic through sober eyes free of myth. That is the only way we can do better. Otherwise we will continue to be that country that harbors dreams for a knowledge-based economy while we have zero appreciable critical knowledge of ourselves. That is the essence of decolonization,” Molosi said.

As if that was not enough, the man is also rumored to be facing several lawsuits from his employees at the law firm.

All Shaya can say is that politics is not for sissies.

Eating food with roughage as a healthy nutritional habit is another thing, but being forced to have it because there is no other food in the house is another.

Just ask deputy council chairperson in the North West District, Lekonne Masoko and he will tell you what it feels like, “Ke jele moroko thata le lebese ha ke gola ko Tsau, ga ke kake ka boela koo gape. Ga ke kake!” “I ate a lot of bran with milk when I was growing up in Tsau. I do not see myself going back to those days.

There is just no way!


He was responding to Minister Lemogang Kwape’s appeal for political leaders to be exemplary and start to eat healthy meals. Kwape has accused politicians including MPs of eating too much, “ko palamenteng batho ba ja mosusumpelo,” “Even in parliament, people eat too much food,” said Kwape
