MoMo is a Somali urban refugee living in Eastleigh, Nairobi where he runs the community radio station Wazi?FM with his Kenyan friend Kevo. Everything is going well until one day the team stumble upon a dark secret in their community and MoMo suddenly vanishes. Pulling together the evidence for the story an inspector from the Kenyan Special Forces is trying to understand what really happened before MoMo’s disappearance. Is everything really as it seems in Eastleigh? Were MoMo and Kevo ever really friends? Will the inspector unravel the case in time? All will be revealed in this gripping detective mystery thriller.
