MASERU — Locally produced radio drama S’moko Feela which used to air on Moafrika FM will rebroadcast starting from November.
Following the appeal by listeners who said they learnt a lot from the drama, all the 58 episodes that make part one and two of the drama series will be rebroadcast.
Talking about the drama, its project coordinator Malefane Malope said the public just couldn’t get enough of the drama.
S’moko Feela is said to be an ‘Edutainment’ production as it provides entertainment for the listeners while addressing issues concerning the public like HIV Testing and Counselling (HTC), building self-esteem, fighting stigma against Aids and consistent condom use which contributes to behavioural change.
“We believe the drama managed to change the educational information it provided.
“Due to the positive feedback we got from part one and two seasons, we already working on the three and four seasons which will continue discussing the same issues, and would also include prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) to the list of topics,” mentioned Malope.
S’moko Feela is a Pusha Love campaign production led by Population Services International (PSI). It is funded by the Government of Lesotho, the United States President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief and USAID.
Pusha Love is a movement established in January that celebrates healthy lifestyles with the aim of reaching individual goals.
It also creates and implements a youth programme called Chomees and community listening events dubbed “H Re Bua”, all designed to bring individuals and their communities into the movement to engage in a conversation about healthy living.
