Githu is a minor character in season 1 of Sense8. He is the leader of the Superpower gang in Nairobi, and enemies with Silas Kabaka. Githu and Capheus become enemies.
Githu and Capheus initially cross paths when Githu's gang robs Capheus's bus. Githu takes Capheus' AIDS medicine, and drives off, leaving Capheus pantless. Capheus fights back against members of the gang, earning the reputation of "Van Damme", and the favor of Silas.
Later, Githu's gang robs Capheus of a backpack, and Capheus gets it back.
Githu and his gang members come to the house of Capheus, demanding that he hand over Amandi to them. Githu reveals that Silas had murdered Githu's sister, and that Githu only wants revenge. Capheus refuses, and drives alone to the Superpower headquarters to face them. There, Githu has Silas a prisoner and demands that Capheus put him down. Capheus instead fights back against the gang, killing many of them, and rescuing Silas.
Capheus and Githu engage in a street duel. Githu is defeated when the Van Damn (the van) delivers a massive kick to Githu, knocking him off his bike.
