Operation Kalulu

by Steve Chimombo

Operation Kalulu, the story of the Hare and the Well, was the first of the retold folk stories by Steve Chimombo. Folk stories are timeless in their relevance, each illustrating good and bad character traits, and behaviour in a variety of situations. This story presents us with a community experiencing a drought, and the way in which they pull together to find a solution. In the course of the process, we see how the animals, human-like in both character and behaviour, sort out issues of governance to the satisfaction of the entire community.
