The church finds itself embroiled in scandals of many kinds lately. For one man, it's the lack of single men in the church. For another, it's the refusal of women to wear pants to church. Another is not happy that the deacon has been acting funny, and is threatening legal action. Another complains that his Sunday School teacher doesn't know how to pronounce Gethsemane. And some are wondering what happened to all the money they've been giving as donations every week.

Indiela Zimbili (Drama)

My son was taken away from me and I will never be the same again. My son and I had an unbreakable bond. We spoke every day of the week and sometimes more than once a day, we used to see each other almost daily too. We loved going shopping together, reading newspapers together, he even helped me with my maths homework.

1st Wife vs 2nd Wife (Drama)

It was an early morning when Chidi woke up to leave his house with his two suitcases full of belongings. He had left a note to his first wife on the kitchen table informing her that he has gone away in search of peace leaving behind his wife and Maria, their daughter. He would like to return after two weeks with new enlightenment and hopefully will be willing to listen to reason and do what he has always wanted in the past: to legitimize the relationship with the second wife. Before leaving he got into a cab waiting at the corner of his street with all his luggage. The driver was amused enough by the poorly packed bags of an elderly man. He decided to pick him up expecting a good amount of money.

Fiela se Kind (Drama)

This tale is about a mother and her son. They are separated from each other for many years. The story of their separation brings tears to your eyes and at times makes you feel like you are the one that was born in the wrong world and never had the chance to meet his mother. I am sure that you will learn many things from this heart-warming story.
