All these were selected carefully and what would be a better way to tell a story than with the right casting.
Run time for the movie is 1hour and 26 minutes, reasonable time ( not too long or too short). It is originally acted in different Ugandan languages like Runyankole, Rutooro, Luganda, and English too but with English subtitles for those that cannot understand one or all the other local languages.

KEMI is proof that the Ugandan film industry is growing with an educative and informational purpose.
