After Independence

May Sumbwanyambe (Playwright) won the BBC Scriptroom competition. He was born in Edinburgh a year after his parents emigrated to the U.K. from Zambia. Their family is split across Zambia, South Africa and Zimbabwe. May’s grandfather was an elected Mayor in Zambia, an early advocate for the independence of all African nations, and his father was in Zambia’s first independent government.
