MultiChoice hosts stakeholders


As part of its Africa Day celebrations, MultiChoice Botswana recently hosted an intimate gathering of stakeholders of the creative community to a movie night of African stories. Held at Molapo Theatre in Gaborone, the gathering included the viewing of a local film, From Above, produced by Ru-Toka Productions, which was licensed by NOW! TV (DStv Ch 290).

The film focuses on an unfortunately common custom in society where disabled children are hidden away from the rest of the community for fear of embarrassment to their families. After giving birth to her disabled daughter, Kelebogile Disana*, or Kelly-D, leaves her child with her mother as she proceeds to the city to live a life free of stress and shame that mothering her daughter has brought upon her. Kelebogile’s life takes on a new chapter when she gets involved in a committed relationship with Shaun*, a go-getter city boy who has no clue of Kelebogile’s secret past and secret child.

MultiChoice Botswana managing director, Lorato Mwape explained that for the past 30 years of their existence in Botswana, it has always been part of their mission to provide Batswana viewers with ease of access to the home-grown content available through local broadcasters such as Btv and NOW! TV, as well as local radio stations on the platform.
