Best Kenyan movies to watch on Netflix in 2022

Netflix is one of the most successful streaming companies in the world. It currently offers all your favorite genres. With a complex recommendation matrix, I have always loved each movie or series that Netflix recommends. Therefore, you can always be sure to keep updated with the latest and trending movies if you have a Netflix account.

Netflix began as an intermediary between movie makers and their clients, but it has morphed to produce original content in a bid to stay competitive. With this move, Kenyans can now see original Kenyan  movies and series being showcased to the entire world. Kenyans can also pride in themselves when they see the people closer to them in action instead of the now-monotonous Hollywood movies.
