A new start for all - beware of AIDS

Set in the Chobe Distrcit, the book A New Start: The Infamous HIV/AIDS Play by Kamwi Mike Nkomba was written to warn people, especially teenagers, about the dangers of the HIV/AIDS scourge.

Most of the characters in the book bear Sesobea names and the story revolves around school-going teenagers Ntukwa, Manga, Matengu and Lumba. Ntukwa dominates the play and the young man perceives himself as the village hunk who 'can sleep with any girl whenever he wants'. Because of his restless spirit, we see him sleeping with Manga, the equally careless village beauty, without using a condom.

Manga, a newcomer at Munitenge School of Thoughts in the Itenge District, thinks there is nothing wrong in cheating on her boyfriend, a student at Kitso Academy in Borwa District with the cute Ntukwa, resulting in disastrous consequences.
