The original text
At first banned and then unbanned, it was Kente’s only published play, and one of only three that he wrote dealing directly with political themes. A melodramatic musical play with political undertones in the township style, on the death of Ntanana, a crippled girl through brutal police action and apartheid bureaucracy.
