Two years ago, a baby was born, ‘The Real Househelps of Kawangware’. 104 episodes later, TRHK has become a house hold name thanks to the hard work put in by the cast and crew.
That being said, the time has come for the show’s writer Abel Mutua and I as the director to bid farewell to the show. After 104 episodes, we feel we’ve done our share and it’d only be fair if we handed over the baton to another team to inject a new feel to the show.
