Sabina Chege was cast as Rehema in the popular television Kiswahili soap opera, Tausi, that aired on KBC TV from 1995.
She acted alongside Dr Kuria, now Dr Tom Olali, a Kiswahili scholar at the University of Nairobi, where she was then a student with fellow thespian Ashina Kibibi, the late Siti.
It was Dr Olali who recast the role of Rehema for Sabina in Hall 4 which housed post-graduate students then. Kibibi committed suicide in 2005.
The series also starred Lindi (Morrine otiya), the orphan who was forced to live with Rhoda, an aunt, and was mistreated to a point of making many viewers break down.
The other memorable character was Master Sugu (Derrick Amunga) who was found mysteriously dead at the Kenyatta National Hospital after missing for a week in 2014.
Tausi, created by Kibwana Onguso, was a favourite of many Kenyans who religiously followed the story of Mzee Kasri: Siti, Rehema, and Rukia and their mother, Bi Zuri.
Other memorable cast memebers include Ondieki, Sango, Bi Popo, Ebosos, Sikitum Mponda and Mjuba.
