BAHASHA (The Envelope)

Co-presented by

There is something missing in Councilman Kitasa’s life. Perhaps it is because his rise as a professional footballer was cut short by injury. Whatever it is, his dreams have always remained frustratingly just beyond his grasp. When a long-standing rival offers him a bribe to secure council approval for an illegal commercial development, Kitasa takes the bait. Once he’s hooked he can’t wriggle loose. Bahasha is the story of an elected public official who betrays his family, friends and community when he takes an easy bribe. He learns the hard way and must now find the road to redemption.
