With the jarring stories of Mathare and Kayole still fresh on their minds the group reconvenes for another anger management session. This time Louis,a.k.a 'Former' shares his struggles. Through him we see how privilege and the colonial baggage internalized by the African bourgeoisie blinds them to the realities of city life.
In the previous episode Jacinda regaled the anger management group with tales of her philandering husband and heartbroken madam. Now Diana shares her story of woe, one laced with domestic abuse, child kidnapping and her attempts at building a new life. Will she get the help she needs?
