AWEsome will be the latest production by the Institute of Engineering of Kenya to hit the country’s television sets as part of celebrating Kenya @50.
The television docu-drama series will show case buildings, defining agricultural projects, ICT, Housing, Education, Transport and Financial technologies among other developments.
The ten AWEsome episodes, the Institution of Engineers of Kenya Chairman, Engineer Julius Riungu said, will cover diverse topics such as energy, water, industry, roads, communication, transport, agriculture, business & finance, housing and education.
“I am optimistic that with sound national development blueprints such as Vision 2030, we will undoubtedly achieve our growth plans especially with the current level of government allocated resources towards improving infrastructure in counties, cities and urban centres,” said Engineer Irungu.
“We are telling a powerful, entertaining, and uplifting story, and we wanted it to come from the engineers,” says the show’s producer, Justus Tharao.
“For entertainment purposes, we have chosen to tell this story from the perspective of the results we can see and touch in order to bring out a believable and emotional narrative that resonates with Kenyans. And just like in any other world-class documentary, AWEsome is about more than just processes and accomplishments. It is a story worth telling.”
The show is expected to premier on November 29th 2013 at the Sankara Hotel, Nairobi. The show is expected to air on NTV Kenya on November 30th at 6.30pm.
