Vuka Machel is a two hander play which depicts a life in the day of two chicken stealers who live in the ghetto.

Vuka Machel is a two hander play which depicts a life in the day of two chicken stealers who live in the ghetto. The two characters often get up to mischief as there is not much for them to do in the area which they reside. The play comically explores the relationship of the two characters through conversations they have on a daily basis, the conversations range from who is the best looking between them to how government officials spend their money. 

The play focuses on the concept of Samora Machel (former leader of Mozambique) waking up to find out that Nelson Mandela had married his wife a Graca Machel. Although the play mentions two major African political figures it is not satirical. It is meant for strictly comical purposes. The play concludes with very controversial yet thought provoking speech. It addresses the shortcomings of Mandela as a statesman and it takes a view on current social issues in South Africa.
