This book explores and describes the genesis, historical development and genius of Chinyanja radio plays in Malawi, with reference to African traditional religion. It analyses the key subjects that feature in the Sewero productions: magic, witchcraft, sorcery, marriage, family life and sexuality. The author concludes by making some recommendations regarding adaptations of Sewero to different media and modes of expression, and for translations and new programmes in other African languages. The introduction is provided by Patrick Semphere who is the National Director of TransWorld Radio (Malawi).
