VEVE is a slang word for what is internationally known as khat or miraa. VEVE follows the lives of multiple characters trying to find themselves in a world of political intrigue, revenge, love and longings for success complemented by the background of the thriving yet unregulated veve business.

This shuka (traditional cloth/fabric worn by the Maasai) became my safety blanket while being sick, while driving on scary/rough roads, and while having an emotional breakdown in the mountains. One day I wore it traditionally to fetch water and the women at the community water tank had a debate over whose brother/cousin/son I should marry.😐 (at Nairobi, Kenya)
Shuka is not a Maasai word for cloth, but a Kiswahili word for sheet [like bed sheet]. The one on your head looks like a leso/khanga [sarong] based on the pattern and colouring.
