‘AMEZIDI’ by Said A. Mohamed

This is a short play written by Said Ahmed Mohamed. It is one of my favorite Swahili short plays I have ever read. In the play Ame and Zidi form the main characters and their behaviors are very similar.

The combination of the names Ame and Zidi to make Amezidi shows that these two characters share much in common. From the cover-page, we see two black heads within one white one. This depicts how African states are still in colonial period years after independence.

The author Said A. Mohamed  illustrates in the most creative way how disease, famine, corruption, laziness, and poor leadership are increasingly contributing to thwarting the poor African continent.

  1. Ni real life story. It is a good book with important message to those who feel they are less important na wamegive up in life.
