Jabulile tells the story of an orphan girl, who loses her life to the dreaded HIV/AIDS scourge through no fault of hers. The existence of orphans in Africa is a sad reality that must be acknowledged. It is a direct result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic that is ravaging the continent. Presently, orphans are exposed to untold hardships and people who should be helping are rather exploiting them. Some are victims of child labor, some are being used as sex slaves, and others have become vagrants, contributing to the increasing crime rate in the society. As revealed in this play, jealousy, greed and avarice also contribute to the ill treatment of orphans. Without love, orphans would always be cast adrift on the ocean of life to sink or swim as best they can.
