SHOTO

A story found by FIRUL MAITHYA and ARNOLD MVOI


Shifting gears in the Eastlands of Nairobi, a local man strives to take over the matatu bus industry with a promise to uphold its vibrant culture.

Shoto is a story about the Matatu bus culture in Nairobi told through the eyes of a local driver named Ken. The unique state of transportation within the biggest city in Kenya can only be experienced first-hand behind the Matatu steering wheel. Ken builds a unique community through his customers and colleagues as he works toward owning his own bus in the near future. Shoto provides a portrait of a man with big dreams in a challenging economic environment.
