What happens when you elect inept politicians into office? We've all only known too well for 60 years now, but this evening we can actually enjoy ourselves for a change!
Shara Mamule is a political satire, and highlights the current political setup. The protagonist is a small politician who gets influenced by external forces in his own circle, such as his PA, his assistants, his friends, and also the four pillars of our constitution, i. e. the legislature, the judiciary, the administration and the media. Each one influences him in decision-making - for example, the media influence him saying that if he doesn't take a particular decision, they will expose him with negative news.
The politician, confused, does what these people ask him to do. Ultimately, there is complete chaos, and the entire system gets ruined. At the end there is a tone in the background, that cautions that if we give power to ineligible people, our government will get ruined. So you should think and vote.
