The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of wet dark fluid (WDF) in Kantowski-Sachs space-time in the general theory of relativity. In this theory, we solved the field equations for the case where r WDF=-2pWDF. Various physical and geometrical properties of the model are also discussed.
