WIMBO WA NYONGO is a Kiswahili Stage Play about Tumaini, a woman, who is a representation of an “African woman” who for a longtime has been suffering from traditions that perpetuate patriarchy.
Tumaini fights against the patriarchy system adhering to the will given to her by her late mother. Her quest for equality makes her go through unimaginable challenges. Nevertheless, she fights on and even competes for a leadership post in her village.
