2013 Kenya Drama Festival Winners

By: Kenya Drama Festivals(Notes) .

Friends School, Kamusinga made a dramatic comeback by winning the top honours in the Kenya Schools and Colleges National Drama Festival narratives.The two-week event hosted at the Aga Khan High School in Mombasa ended on Wednesday. Friends School last won the trophy in the 1990s, and in the last five years, it has always ended as first runners-up, losing out to new entrants. Not so this year, as Selu Selu, a play written by students, carried the day.

It highlighted the challenges that face the digital generation, which is addicted to Facebook, a social media platform that allows friends to share information. The play explored the dangers of Internet addiction. It was performed to a packed audience that included Prof George Godia, the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Education, the event’s national chairman, Mr Chokera Kahura, Education Secretary Enos Oyaya and other officials. The show earned a standing ovation for its currency and ability to capture current affairs and captivate the audience. The story recollects the episodes of a young man, Selu Selu, in his quest to find acceptance. He joins the social networking site to satisfy his ambitions, but this turns out to be a two-edged sword.
