Actress Celestine Gachuhi says she feels emotional as the local telenovela 'Selina' comes to an end four years later.

The show made a debut in 2018 and later aired 6 seasons with a total of 935 episodes.

The last episode of the show will be aired today, 8th April 2022 giving way to a new locally produced show titled Salem.

"I feel blessed to be part of the biggest show. Also so emotional that it's ending but also happy that it's a new beginning for something new."

Salem premieres on Monday on Maisha Magic Plus (DStv Channel 163 and GOtv Supa Channel 8.

Viewers will be exposed to a tale of two cities through two families – one in a wealthy neighbourhood and one a poor family trying to make ends meet – and how the two intersect due to a life-changing event.

Starring Mumbi Maina, Foi Wambui, Melvin Alusa, and Brian Kabugi amongst other critically acclaimed casts, Salem is a riveting, thrilling and spectacular story about inequality- rich versus the poor, and about how fine the line between the two can be.

It’s the story of relatable characters – people we know, or people we may be – and the situations they must fight their way out of, be they of their own doing or beyond their control.  

Ruth Apondi of the classic Kenyan Drama Tausi also makes a powerful TV comeback on the show.

Salem is a story about two families inhabiting separate but intersecting worlds: the Mufasa family in the high class, an upmarket neighbourhood of Karen and the humble Karani family in the high-density and chaotic Salem.

The former lives a glossy life with cracks hidden beneath it, while the latter is a tight-knit and loving family- until everyone’s lives are turned upside down by a devastating event.
