The one of a kind show is set to premiere on Kwesé iflix on Thursday night to users across Africa. The new show is a thirteen-part drama series full action and done in Kenya’s popular slang, sheng with an option of English subtitles. The drama series is based on the Matatu business in Nairobi’s Eastlands area.
Infamous for its criminal filled nature with all sorts of people, the Matatu crew on the show find themselves tangled in a web of corruption and deceit.
The public transport industry in Kenya can be associated with cartels, crime, drugs, prostitution and heavily corrupt police involvement. Gathee, the taxi driver, and his conductor, Jamoe, operate a twenty-seven seater van, commonly known as Nganya, on a route in Eastland’s, the crime Centre of Nairobi City.
According to Nairobi News, Nice created the show four years ago and tried to hawk it to local stations but it wasn’t until several months ago that Kwesé iflix picked it up.
Nganya which already has 2 seasons, will start production of Season 3 in 2019.
