Sarah on her role as Nina 

Sara plays Nina, a lovely young lady with a simple sense of style. Her smile brightens her face, and she is very kind, sincere, positive, and gracious. She enjoys making others happy, and she will do anything to make her family happy. When she is not caring for her family, she tutors children in her neighborhood, carries the bags of elderly women, and runs for help for everyone. 

Nina is Dylan Kambarage's daughter, but she is unaware of this. Her adopted parents, Frida and Bosco, are a family hired by her grandfather Balozi to look after her and kept it a secret. 

Nina, despite being disliked by Frida, is adored by all because of her kindness. Unfortunately, her older stepsister Lola frequently takes advantage of her. Only Bosco shows her love especially when he’s away from Frida's influence. 

Watch Sarah play Nina on Zari every Monday to Friday at 8:30 pm only on Maisha Magic Plus DStv 163 and GOtv 3.
