A Ghost Story (UG)

by Lloyd Lutara

– whenever you choose freedom or power, blood will always be the price –

When university student Opio is gunned down after his twin brother Ochen abandons him in the middle of a peaceful protest against the tyrannical turning of the country’s democratic government into a monarchy by its Head of State, Opio comes back as a ghost to haunt his brother, who he blames for his death.

A re-interpretation of Francis Imbuga’s classic play “Betryal in the City”, A Ghost Story moves the action from Imbuga’s fictional post-colonial nation of Kafira to the modern fictional nation of Kawanda, a thinly veiled critique of the current political climate in Uganda.
