The final shooting of the first three pilot episodes of local series "Muganga" ended on Wednesday this week.

Ken Nkundwa, the Executive Manager of Rwanda Arts Initiative, the agency behind the film, said that the series will explore common rifts between patients and doctors, and the impact of bureaucracy and personal feuds in the health sector.

"The series focuses on the daily issues that we find in medical centres," Nkundwa said. "In general, it looks at how medical personnel attend to people in an evasive manner – knowingly or unknowingly," he added.

The cast of "Muganga" includes Amit – an Indian patient, also a regular at Centre de Santé who now has staff under the impression that he feigns his unending ailments. It also features Rwandan-Ugandan socialite Judith Heard as a nurse.
