Decorated investigative journalist John Allan Namu has landed a TV deal with Maisha Magic to produce a crime show dubbed ‘Kina’.
Confirming the deal during a media showcase in Johannesburg, Director for East & Southern Africa Channels Tim Okwaro said the move to enlist Namu’s content is new.
“We have linked up with John Allan Namu, who is a prolific investigative journalist in Kenya,” Okwaro said.
“We are basically telling human interest stories that impact society. It is exciting for us because it is a new space, we have done a lot of entertainment but now we want to see how this space grows.”
In addition to Allan Namu, Kenyan singer and actor Sanaipei Tande is a lead character in the TV drama. She plays the role of a villain.
In the trailer screened in Johannesburg during the Multichoice media showcase, Sanaipei’s character is seen driving a tractor in a field, chasing after a screaming woman who then falls into a pit.
Sanaipei then buries the woman alive.
