You will crack your rib when you watch the show, trust me. The show airs on NTV every Wednesday at 7.30 pm and has most of its 284+ episodes on You Tube. It was previously aired on KTN but got shifted to NTV.

TRHK Producers and Writers

The Real Househelps of Kawangware was produced by the one and only veteran in this industry; Philip Karanja. He co- owns Phil- It, which is a production company with his old friend Abel Mutua. TRHK was written by Godwin Otwoma. The show premiered on March, 2014 and has never stopped entertaining viewers up to date.

TRHK Synopsis

THRK is a TV comedy-drama show that keeps up with the lives of four women who work as househelps in the slum- filled estate of Kawangware. The 4 househelps are Awiti, Truphena, Kalekye and Njambi. The package portrays comicalness and friendship as they balance work. Oh, and rumor-mongering. Forget Edgar Obare with the tea. These househelps always have some tongue- burning tea served on people around. They seem to know everything about locals, from the new girl in the estate to the man that has just started hitting on her.

Some people have even gone ahead to call this a knock- off version of the popular American Reality TV series known as ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ Well, not really knock-off, but a tailored version of the same to fit the Kenyan audience.

THRK Full Cast and their Real Names

Awiti Winnie Rubi No lie; THRK without Awiti is deadass boring. She is the tough, powerful and loud- voiced harsh woman in the show. Men tremble when they hear her voice. They tremble, not out of ecstasy, but out of fear. Her boyfriend, Njuguna, even fears her and is unable to go for Njambi because Awiti won’t let him.
Truphena Aisha Noor She is madly in love with food. If you want to entice Truphena, please use food and she will be at your beck and call. Ebeneza dumped her because he could not keep up with her crazy eating habits.

Njambi aka Babes Bernice Njeri She has so many lovers to the extent that when she gets pregnant, she does not know who the father of the baby is.

Bernice is a student at the Kenya Polytechnic University College.
