Mambo Leo (Current Affairs) is a satire on the subject of genocide. The play is set in East Africa but is based on the East European crisis during the diplomatic prelude to the Second World War. It is written for a Swahilophone college audience but its appeal is universal.
The sudden death of Oba Irobasa could show that the gods were angry, but the gods-forbidden Oba was enthroned. Oba Eloho was a wolf under a sheep skin. Tactically, he eliminated everyone who opposed his reign using the gods as his weapon.
