The tea growing district of Mulanje in the southern part of Malawi, watched live a preview of Kale movie depicting the life under founding president Hastings Kamuzu Banda which is being produced by Malawi’s famous comedian Michael Usi also popularly known as Manganya.
Kamuzu is the poster face of the self-rule fight that occasioned the hoisting of the rising-sun flag abandoned by the late president Bingu wa Mutharika two years ago and reinstated by Parliament since President Joyce Banda took over power.
During the filming of the documentary movie on Sunday people from all walks from Mulanje and Thyolo district thronged the streets of Mulanje-Mozambique road to witness the remaking of Banda’s history.
When the motorcade entered Mulanje Hospital, people danced while others jostling for space to catch the comedian Manganya playing the leader who was an enigma to his people.
After ‘cheering the patients’ at Mulanje Hospital, Usi went to Chitakale Tea Estate to inspect tea as Kamuzu used to do on crop inspection tour.
Usi said the documenting of the life of Kamuzu, Kale will set the record straight and ensure children born during the multiparty dispensation know where we are coming from.
