Why all the Kenyan Tribes are important – LUO

Posted: June 17, 2015 in Uncategorized

The Kikuyu traditionally were superstitious and today they retain some practices of traditions held over from the old times.  For instance, some Kikuyu still honor some traditional superstitions such as a taboo against whistling.  The traditional belief was that this would call malicious spirits.

The Kikuyu believe the number 10 was unlucky, so even though their legend says Gikuyu had 10 daughters, they always say nine.  When counting they used to say “full nine” instead of the word for ten.  Nowadays this term is still used sometimes by old people or in a joking manner.  The real word is still retained, ikumi.

God Bless Kenya and lets fight Tribalism.
