Written by Jacob Mwadingo, the telenovela tells the story of a family torn apart by a devastating secret that has yet to be revealed.
Jaffar (played by Ken Ambani), a successful businessman who has been living with his family for decades in Tanzania, is forced to move them back home to Kenya – much to the dismay of his wife, Alisa (Saada Fateh).
The target of her wrath, inexplicably, becomes the couple’s eldest daughter, Rina (Shallet Akinyi).
What could have caused this sudden rift between mother and daughter, and will it threaten the family empire?
Season 1 of Kovu will premiere on Maisha Magic East (DStv Channel 158 and GOtv Channel 4) on Monday 4 April at 7.30 pm, and every Monday to Friday thereafter.
