Familiar Faces and Fresh Personalities

Fans who adored the original cast will be delighted to see Minne Kariuki, Vera Sidika, and Dr. Catherine Masitsa grace their screens once again.  These are the women who gave us a glimpse into their glamorous worlds, their unwavering support for each other (sometimes!), and their journeys of self-discovery.  But Season 2 isn’t just about revisiting old stomping grounds.  Joining the veteran cast are three exciting newcomers who are sure to stir things up:

  • Farah Esmail: This 50-year-old force of nature shatters stereotypes. Farah is a lawyer by day, but when she’s not in the courtroom, you might find her pumping iron at the gym or strutting her stuff on a bodybuilding stage. Farah is a multi-faceted woman who defies expectations, and her addition to the cast promises a fresh perspective and a whole lot of girl power.
  • Zena Nyambu: A 41-year-old mother of two, Zena is a successful entrepreneur who has built a beauty and aesthetics empire. She’s juggling motherhood with managing her businesses, including a luxury skincare parlor and a thriving interior design company. Zena’s drive and ambition are sure to be a central theme in her storyline, and viewers will likely get a glimpse into the challenges and triumphs of balancing a career with family life.
  • Reja Keji Ladu: At 29 years old, Reja is already a jetsetter and the wife of a South Sudanese minister. This young socialite doesn’t shy away from the finer things in life, but she’s also a businesswoman with ventures in fashion, catering, and wellness. Reja’s international background and lavish lifestyle will undoubtedly add a new dimension to the show, offering a glimpse into a world of luxury and diplomatic circles.

A Celebration of Nairobi’s Vibrancy

Executive producer Eugene Mbugua promises a season that goes beyond just showcasing the opulent lifestyles.  He says, “We’re excited to bring back familiar faces and introduce new ones. This season will celebrate the beauty of Kenya, showcasing Nairobi’s vibrant culture and stunning scenery. But of course, we’ll also deliver the intrigue and entertainment that fans love. The Real Housewives of Nairobi is all about the drama, the laughter, and the unfiltered lives of these extraordinary women.”
