About Ka Lebitso La Moya

Ka Lebitso La Moya, written and directed by MoMo, is set in a fictional township of Ha Satane, where the people are living in poverty, joblessness and crime. Unhappy with the government’s lack of service in their community, the people of Ha Satane grow restless. However, the arrival of a charming new priest pacifies their anger and offers them hope for a better life. But hidden behind his charm lies a wolf in sheepskin.

“I had to tell this story.  I was aware that it was going to be uncomfortable for some people to watch. I’m confident in the critical conversations it was going to spark and that for me is more important.

The reception at the National Arts Festival proved to me that I was on the right track, the production got people talking, and that is exactly what I wanted to achieve.” ~ MoMo
