Meet the new cast of The Real Housewives of Nairobi season 2

The Real Housewives of Nairobi makes its highly-anticipated return for Season 2 on 10th May.

Season 2 sees the comeback of actress and entrepreneur Minne Kariuki, alongside the reintroduction of Vera Sidika, who is eager to share her latest chapter, and the ever-stylish business mogul, Dr. Catherine Masitsa.

Joining the seasoned cast are new faces, including lawyer and professional bodybuilder Farah Esmail, beauty entrepreneur Zena Nyambu, and Reja Keji Ladu.

“We’re very excited for the return of The Real Housewives of Nairobi in May. Over the years, D&R Studios has cut a niche in quality production of unscripted shows in Kenya, and to be able to pull off a global format of this magnitude and have it renewed is something we’re very proud of as a company,” says executive producer Eugene Mbugua.

“In this new season, we’ll see a return of some familiar faces and a few new additions. We’re very keen to bring out the opulence that Nairobi and Kenya have to offer while maintaining the excitement and intrigue that makes The Real Housewives what it is.”

Here are the details of the new cast members:

Zena Nyambu is a 41-year-old mother of two and a beauty and aesthetics entrepreneur who runs several businesses, including luxury skincare parlour Glamsquad Kenya, interior design company Art Infinity and is also a partner at Zela Aesthetics, a medical aesthetics and wellness centre.

Twenty-nine-year-old Reja Keji Ladu is a mother of two and the wife to the Minister of Cabinet Affairs of South Sudan. Born in Uganda, and raised in both Uganda and South Sudan, Reja resides in Nairobi with her children.
