The Story

Known by the moniker, the mountain, when alive, Mlima, the elephant's ghost, haunts the ivory trafficking industry, leaving imprints on those who carried out his horrible murder. He was murdered for his magnificent tusks, for greed, and for ivory. The play is a reflection of how the evil gamekeepers and law enforcers who approved of and earned from Mlima the Mountain's heinous murder still haunt the ivory trafficking market.
