“Bwatele hoyee!” County 49 episode 1, now streaming on Showmax, ushers in a new female governor who’s eager to challenge the corrupt system that has plagued Bwatele County for years.
She steps into office amid great civilian discontent because of the misdeeds of her predecessor, who now faces criminal charges, including corruption, abuse of office, and treason. The new governor is keen on righting the wrongs done to the citizens of Bwatele County.
Just a few miles away, the Hive, a local terrorist group, assembles. They want what they’re owed. The governor’s message of hope and accountability means nothing to citizens who’ve never benefited from their own county’s wealthy resources.
