Segment 1

PRIEST
Mamu.
MAMU
Hello dear.
PRIEST
Mamu, what are you doing here?
MAMU
My dear, I came to congratulate you.
PRIEST
What if coach finds you here?
JOHARI
You have played very well, congratulations. Guys, look how rude priest is to his mom.
BEN
If he knew how lucky he is, you know?
TINA
I wish she were my mom.
JOHARI
Anyway, let's clean up before coach comes.
MAMU
One last job, for old time’s sake. And then I’ll leave you alone.
PRIEST
What if it’s not the last job? What if I get caught?
MANU
You’re the best. You’ve never been caught. Why should that happen now?
PRIEST
My luck might have run out.
MAMU
I’ll double the money.
PRIEST
You know what? I won't do it. It’s not always about money Mamu. Okay I’ll do it, as long as I have your word that this is the last job.
MAMU
You have my word. This is the last one.
PRIEST
Mamu, I don’t want you coming here, it will bring me problems. I don’t know how you guys act.
MAMU
Priest, don’t I get a goodbye kiss?
PRIEST
Yeah, whatever.
WATCHMAN
Hey, my friend.
PRIEST
Hey, my man. Let me out.
WATCHMAN
Okay, you are now going out?
PRIEST
Yes man.
WATCHMAN
That’s nice.
PRIEST
Today I’m in a hurry.
WATCHMAN
That is nice, that is nice.
PRIEST
I know you want to look good, look good with that man.
WATCHMAN
Priest, today you will have to add something more.
PRIEST
Even you’re a thug. What’s up man?
WATCHMAN
The problem with you is you complain too much. Why do you complain so much?
PRIEST
Okay, fine, when I get back.
WATCHMAN
When you get back I will have gone to report that you sneaked out.
PRIEST
My friend, you can sell me out like that? After all this money that I have been giving you, friendship is not like that.
WATCHMAN
That is not my fault. The price of flour went up, it’s not me who hiked the price.
PRIEST
Stop eating ugali; eat some rice man. What’s wrong with you?
WATCHMAN
The way you see my body, can it be fed on rice? This body cannot be fed on rice.
PRIEST
It’s just that I’m in a hurry.
WATCHMAN
Cool, go well.
ABBAS
Morning mom.
MARY
Morning son. You’re up early today.
ABBAS
It’s a force of habit.
MARY
Force of habit? Abbas, since when? As long as I can remember your wake up call is from midday.
ABBAS
That was in the past mom. I’m a changed man now. I even wake up by 5 am.
MARY
Seems like that soccer camp did you more good than bad.
ABBAS
More than you’ll ever know. I even make my bed.
MARY
You make your bed? I've got to see this one.
ABBAS
Can you imagine?
JUMA
Good morning.
MARY
Good morning. There are some eggs there, sausages, and your coffee is ready. Please help yourself.
JUMA
No, not right now. This email is really --
MARY
You need put your phone down just for a few minutes.
JUMA
I’ll eat later.
MARY
What time is your meeting?
JUMA
About 11:30. Abbas, where are you going?
ABBAS
To work out.
MARY
But Abbas, you haven’t even finished your breakfast!
ABBAS
Later mom.
MARY
I wish you wouldn’t be so harsh on him.
JUMA
I haven’t said a thing.
MARY
You didn’t have to. He can feel your disapproval. Even I can feel your disapproval of him.
JUMA
After what he’s done, of course I disapprove.
MARY
All I’m asking is just be a little more civil to him. After all, he is still your son.
JUMA
Unfortunately.
MARY
Now what is that supposed to mean? Honestly sweetheart, sometimes you can be so insensitive. And let me tell you something --
JUMA
I never meant to --
MARY
I don’t care what you meant! I am no longer going to be a go-between between you and your son. If you to continue this war with Abbas, go ahead but leave me out of it. I am so tired of walking on eggshells in my own house. Deal with it sweetheart.
NEWSCASTER
The incidences of carjacking are on the rise again. Last night, yet another victim succumbed to this social ill.
LULU
Daddy, what’s a carjacking?
COACH
I’ll tell you in a minute.
NEWSCASTER
This time, the unfortunate victim was a young, promising local football player going by the name of “Priest." Priest scored the winning goal during Imani FC’s most recent match. Priest died of gun wounds. It seemed to be a gangland style killing. Priest was dead on arrival at the hospital.
WATCHMAN
Priest, you have just gone like that.
KEZIA
Coach, what happened?
COACH
We don’t know yet.
BEN
This story doesn't make sense. Yesterday he was fine. He was here with us.
COACH
I know.
KEZIA
What are the police saying?
TINA
Those are not trustworthy people.
COACH
Well, not everything is a conspiracy.
TINA
Try living in the ghetto, you will find out.
COACH
Let's all calm down. We will start looking for answers when the time is right. But right now it's not. You may choose to go home or you can stay behind, provided you are back by evening.
BETH
And if anybody wants to talk, we’re ready to listen. Please don’t go through this alone.
COACH
Johari, as the captain, please empty Priest's locker.
JOHARI
Yes coach.
COACH
All right.
ABBAS
Hi Johari.
JOHARI
Hi Abbas. Have you heard?
ABBAS
Yes. How are you?
JOHARI
I’m okay, under the circumstances.
ABBAS
He was my roommate.
JOHARI
Abbas, I was thinking if it's not too much trouble, the coach has given us the rest of the day off. If it’s okay with you, I could come over, or something?
ABBAS
I think I’d like that. I’ll pick you up from town.
JOHARI
I’ll meet you in town. Take care.
JOHARI
Coach, coach.
COACH
What’s this?
JOHARI
I found this in Priest's locker.
COACH
My god.
JOHARI
What shall we do?
COACH
For starters, we shall not disclose any of this to the team members.
JOHARI
But why? They deserve to know the truth.
COACH
Why? What good will it do?
JOHARI
I don’t want to keep this secret.
COACH
Johari, the Priest you knew, we knew on the pitch, was not a criminal. He was trying to be better. So let's keep the Priest we knew in our hearts. We don’t want anyone planning for revenge. We don’t want to up to the hate, do we?
JOHARI
No coach, we don’t. I guess I have to get going.
JUMA
Hey Abbas.
JOHARI
If anyone has something to say, please say it. It really helps to talk about it.
KEZIA
Priest was a very kind man. He helped me pay my brother’s bills.
JOHARI
Anyone else? How can you guys describe Priest?
KEZIA
Kind.
BEN
Generous.
OLI
Intelligent.
JOHARI
He was talented. Does anyone have the pepetathon tape?
OLI
Yes, I have it.
JOHARI
Please can we watch it?
BETH
Be strong for the team.
