Jela 5-Star’, a dramatic comical production scripted around a short hold prison bringing to life situations that can be tragic as they can be hilarious. Featuring in the show is Madam Melba, a woman who runs a male correctional facility, but is not one to back away from a challenge. Her glorious past as a member of the Prison Service Boxing Team makes her a fierce disciplinarian, but beneath her tough exterior is a soft and humane personality.

Jela 5 star is produced by Appie Matere and the set designed by George Mungai. It airs every Monday to Wednesday from 8.30pm on Maisha Magic East.
