Hunter & Gatherer

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.

1 review for Hunter & Gatherer

  1. Ruben

    Sally Obange is an intelligent and ambitious marketing professional covertly orchestrating her destiny to success in advertising in the bustling business community of Upperhill, Nairobi. The millionaire tenderpreneur Rapudo Oremo wants to marry her. Her 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. Rapudo has only one goal: to use politics for gain. It’s no sin for him to plot to unseat his older brother, the MP for Busa North constituency, and take over the seat. He wants to expand his business and amass more millions. 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. But this not any politics. This is Kenyan politics. It comes with furious vengeance and it is manned by greedy and corrupt players with cold-blooded underhand dealings. The game is played in a nefarious world. In a shrouded metropolis. In Nairobi City. The world of men.

    Sally the hunter finds herself 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.
