Local comedy play Vioja Mahakamani was the program one would not afford to skip in the 90s. Before their abrupt exit from the popular sitcom, the fondness of Ondiek Nyuka Kwota (Hirum Mungai), Peter Sankale who played Olexander Josephat, late great Mzee Ojwang Hatari (Benson Wanjau) and Alfonse Dot Makacha Dot Makokha actual name Mathias Keya-would leave spectators in stitches. Separated from these funny men, other famous characters who played more ‘profound’ roles were Gibson Kamau (Prosecutor), Mama G aka Judge (Lucy Wangui).
