Produced by Assignments Studios, Nganya is a Swahili drama focused around the matatu business in Nairobi’s Eastlands. The public transport industry in Kenya can be related to cartels, crime, drugs, prostitution and heavily corrupt police involvement. Gathee, the taxi driver, and his conductor, Jamoe, run a twenty-seven-seater van, commonly known as Nganya, on a route in Eastland’s, the crime Centre of Nairobi City. Gathee is the experienced one and Jamoe the rookie, while not always the best of friends, they have created a good working relationship in order to survive.
Githinji stated, “It wasn’t an easy sell, most of the stations told me that it was not what they wanted. Others told me to change the content to be a little friendlier. I thank Kwesé iflix for believing in our work and picking the series.”
