Sally Obange, an ambitious marketing pro, is covertly orchestrating her destiny in advertising. The millionaire “tenderpreneur” Rapudo Oremo wants to marry her. He needs a wife to qualify to get into politics. Kenyan politics manned by greedy and corrupt players with cold-blooded underhand dealings and played in a nefarious world. In a shrouded metropolis. In Nairobi City. The world of men. Rapudo is probably tailor-made. He is vicious and overtly ambitious. He’s shrewd. He’s ruthless. He’s unscrupulous. He’s flamboyant. He surrounds himself with shady deal makers, power brokers, ruthless lawyers and thugs from Katwikira in Kibira. Every political force in his path is turned into a surrogate for the motifs on the contemporary political scene. Sally’s unwarrantable attraction to him presents her with the prospect for power and freedom her heart truly yearns for and she is thrown into the arena of absurdity. A revolving chain of unfortunate circumstances lands her between a rock and a hard place. She must be Rapudo’s wife. He must marry her on her terms. Her evolution from an ordinary professional into a cold blooded political animal is not by chance or circumstance, she is from Dandora in Eastlands, and she was born to struggle and use every opportunity that comes in her path. She is focused, she has commitment and sheer will. She is the person Rapudo needs.
