If you loved the kids’ show Machachari, sorry.
The show will no longer air on Citizen TV again.
The show has been under criticism over the age of the characters, with many claiming that they had outgrown the show.
Machachari aired on Citizen TV every Friday at 7:30pm for 13 years. The show revolved around the lives of young children and teenagers but even after most of the teens transitioned to adulthood, it became irrelevant to the target audience.
Johari will now replace Machachari but will be airing every Friday at 6:30pm on Citizen TV.
Other shows such as Papa Shirandula, Tahidi High and Inspekta Mwala on Citizen TV have been moved to weekdays at 6:30pm.
Well in a Q&A session with his fans on Instagram, Baha, one of the pioneer actors of Machachari said it wasn’t easy to take the news.
To be honest inauma [it hurts]. Lakini we shouldn’t be sad because it’s over…but celebrate juu ilihappen.
Talking about what it takes for one to become a great actor, he said,
No particular set of qualities required…Just learn how to perform all seven human emotions and being able to recreate the same emotion severally and not only on impulse but planned.
Below are photos of the all grown Machachari actors.
