Machachari revolved around the lives of young children and teenagers but even after most of the teens transitioned to adulthood, it became irrelevant to the target audience.
Citizen TV announced that Machachari will be replaced by Johari. The new show has a plotline revolves around kids having fun around Mt Kenya.
Explaining further why Machachari had to be done with, here is what the Executive Director had to say:
“When you have watched something for 13 years, you do not want to replace characters with lookalikes. It may not do very well with the viewers who have bonded with some of the characters.”
