The Winning Radio Plays of 2010
What is African Performance?
Kitu Kidogo - meaning something small in Swahili and refers to bribery - is the tale of two policemen who are struggling to make ends meet.
They resort to petty bribery by stopping drivers on the road and querying their documents and car’s roadworthiness in order to extort extra funds - that is until they unknowingly stop the new head of the anti-corruption bureau.
They end up escaping prison by agreeing to assist her in entrapping the bigger fish within the police force.
More on the joint second place winner
Atwine Bashir Kenneth is a Ugandan living in the central district of Kampala.
He is a teacher by profession and majors in biology as his main teaching subject but confesses that he feels more at home with a copy of Ousmane Sembene's book God’s Bits of Wood in his hand.
"I do quite a lot of reading in my spare time, but Kitu Kidogo is my first attempt at writing a play," says Atwine.
"I drew inspiration from events around me, and trust me you don't have to look hard in our beloved Pearl of Africa.
"I idolise all African writers who have made a difference through writing and hopefully one day my name will appear on that list - that's my dream," he added.
