Zambezi Magic honours Sir Ketumile Masire

29 June 2017
Join us this Saturday as we pay homage to the late Former President of Botswana and “Father of the Nation” Sir Quett Ketumile Joni Masire.

MultiChoice and Zambezi Magic are giving customers access to view Botswana-produced documentary film, We Are All Blue in honour of the late Former President of Botswana and “Father of the Nation” Sir Quett Ketumile Joni Masire.

The docu-film will air on Zambezi Magic (160) - which will be made available to all IS20 customers on Thursday 29 June at 11:00 and 22:00, on Friday 30 June at 11:00, and on Saturday 1 July at 09:00. The channel will be available on Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Family, and Access bouquets.

Starring award-winning Broadway and Hollywood actor, Donald Molosi(30) and produced by local production company, Torch Studios, We Are All Blue follows Molosi as he embarks on a journey to discover more about himself, his people, and Botswana, the country he calls home.

In the documentary Molosi explores some fundamental life questions about identity and belonging, about being a Motswana, and about the contradictions inherent in the country he loves. Towards the end of the film Molosi reflects on how far Botswana has come in the 50 years since independence, but also on how far it still has to go – and what needs to be done to regain and maintain Botswana’s reputation as Africa’s success story.

The film features Molosi’s conversations with other notable Batswana including Former Deputy Secretary-General Mrs. Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba; Kgosikgolo of Batawana Kgosi Tawana Moremi II; and Former President of Botswana, Sir Ketumile Masire.

Donald Molosi made history ten years ago when he became the first Motswana actor to perform on Broadway. Over the past decade, Molosi has scooped many major awards on Broadway and off-Broadway for his acting and writing, prompting the New York Times to call his award-winning performances “inflamed with passion.” Molosi’s critically-acclaimed plays are taught around the world as part of the school curriculum in various countries including the United States. Molosi currently divides his time between Botswana, US and UK working as an actor, writer and film producer.
