This Is Why The Fundi-Mental Female Cast Took Off Their Tops For Cancer

Last week the female cast of “Fundi-Mentals” movie (Kalekye Mumo, Lizz Njagah, Neomi Ng'ang'a, Milkah Ndegwa, Florence Nduta and Ruth Maingi) did a bold photo-shoot in order to bring awareness to the public about breast cancer.

The photo shoot brought a wave of mainly positive reactions and made more actors and crew to join the cause!

The female cast also challenged the male cast of the movie to do the same, as breast cancer is not just a female issue. Breast cancer is often thought of as a condition that only affects women, but men can also develop it.

Breast cancer in men is much less common than breast cancer in women, with only around one new case diagnosed for every 100,000 men each year. Breast cancer occurs mainly in women, but men can get it, too.

Many people do not realize that men have breast tissue and that they can develop breast cancer.

The actors and crew joined the bold Photoshoot to encourage men and women to #ProtectThem and #CheckThem.

The brave people are: Gerald Langiri (Fundi-Mentals, House of Lungula), Charles Karumi (Fundi-Mentals, Jane and Abel), Adhiambo Opondo (Fundi-Mentals, House of Lungula), Sheila Kwamboka (House of Lungula, Love or Die), Olympia Owira (Lies the bind, Block D) and make up artist Michelle Onginjo.

We hope that more actors will follow!

Fundi-Mentals the movie, which is a co-production of Historia Films and Native Productions, is currently finishing postproduction and will be ready for release early 2015. You can check the crazy trailer here:

The movie is about Joseph (Gerald Langiri) and his assistant Moses (Charlie Karumi) who like to think of themselves as the Best Fundis in Kinoo, despite their unorthodox methods.

But the entry of a new Multinational Service Company in town throws all this in jeopardy. To avoid going out of business, they introduce to their female customers a new type of sex-press service with hilarious results!

Also starring in the movie is Florence Nduta, Lizz Njagah, Kalekye Mumo, Neomi Ng’ang’a, Veronica Waceke, Ruth Maingi, Milkah Ndegwa and Ojiambo Ainea.
