After a successful season, the curtains are once again falling on the popular Kenyan TV series Crime and Justice season 2.
The final episode titled Whistleblower sees Makena (Sarah Hassan) and Silas (Alfred Munyua) race against time to solve a major conspiracy that has been looming over them for months.
During their investigations, they are forced to confront an ugly truth in the police force, as a series of gang murders leads them back to the death of a trusted colleague.
The two detectives finally solve the mystery of who’s been trying to kill them. Well, sort of, because the season’s end alludes to an even bigger conspiracy than they could ever imagine – a cabal of enforcers who exercise their own vigilante justice to rid the city of criminals deserving of their wrath.
“We’re dealing with a well-connected organisation, taking matters into their own hands, from kidnapping, terrorism, assassinations. They’ve got their hands everywhere, from judges, government officials, even police officers right here in our precinct. Who can we trust?” Police Chief Kebo (Maqbul Mohammed) said.
The finale also welcomes Lenana Kariba (Single Kiasi) as William Sande, a charming detective from the Special Crimes Prevention Unit brought in to help with the case. Even though famous for his exemplary detective work, Sande’s mysterious past sets him on a collision course with Silas as he Sande and Makena rekindle their romance.
Other guest stars in this episode include singer and actress Chantelle (Subira), entertainment consultant Brian Msafiri, who makes his acting debut, Sam Psenjen (Sincerely Daisy, Mission to Rescue) and Morning After and Njoro wa Uba writer Brian Munene.
Season 1 was praised by fans for addressing difficult topical issues in the country such as femicide and domestic abuse, terrorism, and radicalization, while also exposing the limits of the justice system in Kenya.
The show was nominated for three Kalasha awards across all the TV Drama categories: Best TV Drama, Best Lead Actor (Munyua), and Best Lead Actress (Hassan).
Crime and Justice was also the most popular show among Showmax subscribers in Kenya when it premiered in February 2021 and remained in the top spot for nine weeks straight.
