Njuguna Ng’ang’a / 15 mins / Kikuyu / Rating 12


This film is free to watch and is geo-blocked to the UK region only.

Njuguna moved into the area 11 years ago and is therefore still considered an outsider. After all this time he still does not understand why his town is stagnate when other towns are thriving. Time for him to ask around!  Many elders tell him what happened, but how to make sense of it all?

This film was created as part of the Scottish Documentary Institute's Kenyan Stories programme, in partnership with Docubox and British Council.
