Ni Sisi portrays a typical Kenyan community: a harmonious muddle of tribes, intermarriages, and extended families. Friends who have lived and worked together all their lives, who place no stock in which tribe their neighbour comes from. Then one day rumours begin to spread and suddenly mistrust takes hold. People are identified as belonging to a different tribe rather than by their identity as a person. With mistrust comes a sense of threat, with threat fear escalates- it’s a ripple effect , and old friends now turn on each other. In a matter of days, the bonds and alliances – the foundation of the community – are severed just as it did in reality in 2008. They find themselves plunging into chaos, and it seems unstoppable and brutal. Or is it possible that by learning from the mistakes of the past our once peaceful community can be given another chance?
