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.

    If the movement and actions of people,are CONTROLLED – Canada will SAVE BILLIONS,IN CARBON AND ENVIRONMENT COSTS and FUEL./POWER Costs If People OBEY,the state will save Billions in Health care costs If People OBEY,the state will save Billions in Law Enforcement and Social Costs If People OBEY,it makes the base for AI – which will REPLACE most Humans at work – which will reduce staff costs and save billions in efficiencies

    Take a Canadian family,which makes,75000 CAD a year.After taxes and deductions,they get say CAD 35000.Of this,they spend on food,power,education,insurance,medicines .. and save,CAD 15000.

    SUPPOSE JUSTIE SAYS – VAXED AND OBEDIENT PEOPLE – GET FOOD.POWER, EDUCATION…. – FOR FREE OR WITH COUPONS,AND THEY DO NOT NEED TO WORK – AND THEY WILL BE PAID, 9000 CAD A YEAR – HOW MANY WILL BUY IN !

    MOST OF THE VAXED, IN THE MEDIAN SALARY STRATA, WILL BUY IN !

    JUSTIE WILL PAY THEM,FROM THE BILLIONS SAVED !

    IT IS A WIN-WIN,FOR ALL EXCEPT THE UNVAXED !

    THE UNVAXED ARE ALSO THE ONES,WHOSE VOTES CANNOT BE BOUGHT,OR SWAYED BY THE MEDIA – AND THUS,ARE THE TILT FACTORS, IN ELECTIONS !
