MSU students debut at Amakhosi


THREE Midlands State University (MSU) students on Sunday showcased their debut plays at the Amakhosi Cultural Centre.


Victoria Mbedzi, Progress Moyo and Dumolwenkosi Dube are studying a degree in Bachelor of Arts in film and theatre studies.

They are currently doing attachment at the cultural centre. The three pleased the crowd with their scintillating plays.

“This time we have three energetic students from Midlands State University and they seem to be climbing to the top,” Jeffrey Sibanda said.

The first play was Fact versus Truth written and directed by Mbedzi followed by Family Affairs by Moyo.

Journey Across was written and directed by Dube.

Family Affairs traces the struggles of young women in the society forced into marriage while Journey Across illuminates the struggles of Nzula who is forced to leave his country in search for greener pastures.

“This is a two-man cast and the main character Nzula struggles and leaves the country,” Moyo explained.

Fact versus Truth is a story of a chief who grew up under harsh religious conditions and having an abusive back- ground, resulting in bad relations with his family and the surrounding people.

The play features Amakhosi academy student, a third time junior award winner Cadrick Msongelwa.
