Here are new Kenyan shows streaming on Showmax this April.
The System | 6 April
Corruption, murder, political conspiracies and rivalries are just a few of the themes on The System, the new political drama that follows the lives of the political class in Kenya. With the country at the brink of chaos, and heightened further by the murder of a beloved activist and Nobel laureate, the ailing president seeks to right the wrongs of the government by commissioning a damning report that some people would kill for never to see the light of day. Legendary veteran actor Raymond Ofula (Queen Sono, Monica) plays the incorruptible Teiye, the only politician who would rather risk his promising political career than bribe a tabloid journalist to bury a story about his family. The System also features Elsaphan Njora (Kati Kati), Joseph Omari (Makutano Junction, Supa Modo), Ken Ambani (Kovu, From a Whisper), Maryanne Nungo (Supa Modo), Brian Ogola (18 Hours), Ian Mbugua (Changes, House of Lungula) and Joe Kinyua (Njoro wa Uba).
Kina | 9 April
The explosive new drama Kina that follows the wealthy Tandalas and the poor Mwakazis whose different worlds collide following a tragedy that sets the drama in motion. Sanaipei Tande plays Nana Tandala, a water magnate who owns Kina Waters, and who would do anything to get what she wants, even kill for it. But her “perfect” world is about to be shaken by the young and fiery Bella Mwakazi who will not rest until she gets the justice her family deserves after her father is found dead by the river.
Kovu | 9 April
From Lulu Hassan and Jiffy Pictures, the production that brought you Maza, Huba and Maria, comes Kovu, a new Swahili telenovela that follows the wealthy Haze family whose bonds are threatened by a dark secret after the family relocates from Tanzania to Kenya. Ken Ambani (The System, From a Whisper) plays the Haze family patriarch Jaffar, a man who must deal with his wife’s growing restlessness and hatred towards her firstborn daughter, a reminder of her long-kept secret.
