Kenya: The Death of Cinema

Njeri discusses the death of cinema in Kenya: “Rising Cost of Living: I would attribute this as one of the main causes of the Cinema's demise. With the price of bread at Ksh. 40, Maize meal at almost Ksh.100, most consumables have become a luxury. Thus we cannot even start to discuss entertainment as many Kenyans are surviving nowadays, not living.”
