Mbonela, who was, until his resignation Head of Programmes at MIJ Radio, told Nyasa Times he has secured a contract for the comics to be aired on Times television.

”We are on pilot phase, for a month now, but so far there is a [positive] feedback,” Mbonela said.

Mbonela disclosed he resigned from MIJ two weeks ago to prioritize on his studies. He is doing his bachelor’s degree at the Polytechnic of the University of Malawi.

”Nancy vs Che Nkope is a trademark I created and now people have a chance to enjoy their favourite comics on television.”

Mbonela said he opted for the name Che Nkope in honour of his late father.

”Che Nkope is a village in Mangochi district and that’s where my late father hailed. I decided to adopt the name for my comics in his honour.”

Mbonela joined MIJ in 2011.

Last year he successfully underwent a medical treatment at Milpark Hospital in South Africa after being
diagnosed with Carcinogenic shock, a condition in which the heart fails to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.

Aside the comics, Mbonela also known as Nthumwi Nikodemo is a musician and was part of now defunct music duo, Atumwi which he used to perform with Piksy.

Che Nkpe in its original creativity can only be succesful on radio. Unless you turn it into muppets, probably it would be funny. Something like Cookie Monstter on Sesame street. Or else you may run it more like King of the Hill or The Simpsons animated series. Otherwise, I bet it wont work this way. But I loved it on radio to bits.

Mbonela is a good material for radio, he is very bad at stage shows, saw him in Lilongwe at Alakatuli function at Kamuzu Insititute for Youth, he was not impressive and was very boring and irrelevant. those wo attended the show will agree with me. the show was called Bwalo La Alakatuli organised by Matindi FM. The guys irrelevant.
