Gikuyu Tribe Nine Beautiful Daughters
Kenya’s Gikuya tribe calls Mount Kenya Kere-Nyaga where the supreme God Ngai lives. Mogai gave a wife to Gikuyu named Moombi and they created nine beautiful daughters.
Origin of the Gikuyu Tribe of Kenya
Mogai, the divider of the universe called a man named Gikuyu to him taking him to the top of Kere-Nyaga (Mount Kenya). Mogai pointed out the lush fertile lands and told the Gikuyu man all is his, if he is ever in need, raise his hands toward Kere-Nyaga and pray.
Mogai told Gikuyu not to worry and make sacrifices to the mountain Kere-Nyaga where the God Ngai lives but he must do this while standing under a fig tree.
When he returned to the fig tree in the morning, he found nine young men waiting patiently under the fig tree.
The men married Gikuyu’s daughters and continued to live on the land for generations still praying and giving thanks to the mountain Kere-Nyaga where the God Ngai dwells.
