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.

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.
