Sisters In Law

The “sisters” of the title refers to State Prosecutor Vera Ngassa and Judge Beatrice Ntuba, a formidable duo who relentlessly take on any wrongdoing in the area, in particular male violence against women. Outspoken and determined, they hold short shrift with bullies and liars, as we witness through their day-to-day handling of the cases brought before them, following several-fly-on-the-wall-sequences from initial claim to subsequent sentencing in court.
