The Kenyan Film industry is slowly growing with more creative content being produced and now there’s a new political drama series dubbed ‘Game of Wits’ set to premiere soon.
The series is set in a fictional place called Jumbo county. It revolves around the challenges the governor-elect Collins Limbo, played by Mombasa based actor Abubakar Ismael, and his team face during the first 100 days in office after winning an election by a landslide.
However, unbeknown to Mr Limbo, he is not exactly the people’s choice after a hacker was paid to rig the elections in his favor. This causes ripples in the local political scene when former governor Czar Kige (Raymond Ofula) finds out he may have been rigged out.
Kige is a ruthless politician who will do almost anything for power.
The series is written and produced by Liz Karanja who also stars as Lexy, Limbo’s secretary, and Kige’s foster child.
Emnaz International, a company based in Mombasa, is behind the production of the show which was shot this year, between April and May and is currently in post-production.
