Mombasa Raha, My Foot. (#Wattys2017)
"Mombasa is beyond the hotel gates."
A group of Kenyan youth, nursing their disappointment in not finding jobs after school, stumble upon a lottery competition in its final rounds and decide to try their luck, resulting in them winning the grand prize of an all-expenses paid trip to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Their stopover being at the lottery's head offices in Mombasa, they decide to celebrate by attending the Coastal Cultural Festival, held at the Orchardson-Yusuf Beach Resort.
Everything seems to go well..........until one by one, they wake up in a strange room, with a tripod stand near their beds.
