Ten actors, Abbey Mukiibi, Andrew Benon Kibuka, Abu Kawenja, Charles Bwanika, Lyton Namubiru, Kaya Kagimu Mukasa, Peter Odeke, Joseph Walugembe, Michael Wamuyo and Martin Oscar Kintu, were selected to be part of the cast after auditioning in Kampala.

They are already in Rwanda for the filming which, expected to start on Monday. The film will be supported by Cinefacto Rwanda, a Rwandan company and HBO, a US cable television company.
