Selina, Reuben Odanga’s Swahili telenovela, has come a long way from the days of Selina (Celestine Gachuhi) being sold to the wealthy Mackenzies as a maid and falling in love with their youngest son Nelson Mackenzie (Pascal Tokodi) to the current fifth season where she’s now fighting to save Nelson from the clutches of the evil Messina (Angie Magio).

Kovu, airs Mondays to Fridays at 6:30pm EAT

Njoro wa Uba has been praised by fans as one of the most relatable shows in Kenya in the way it captures the struggles of hustlers trying to make a living, the drastic shift of employed to unemployed and the plight of taxi drivers in Kenya.
