Discovering a proud son of Mumbi on a mission

One of my aunts one of whose major distinctions in life was to start my Gikuyu education at a very late age in life is visiting me from Malindi.  I took it upon myself to walk her through the virtual world of the net and as we discovered new places together, we came across Charuthi Ng’ang’a Wairia – that’s Charles Ng’ang’a Wairia.

Charuthi is a Gikuyu man based in Wilson, North Carolina and he is doing a Gikuyu blog, GĨKŨYŨ KĨA MŨGĨKŨYŨ

We started reading a story that he has been telling for a while and we were cracked up. Needless to say, we are hooked. Painstakingly reading the story aloud, we kept stopping to burst out in raging mirth and I just had to share it.

If you are a Gikuyu with just passable reading skills, I suggest you go over to http://gikuyukiamugikuyu.blogspot.com/ and start practicing the language amidst undisguisable pleasure.



I am first an foremost a writer who cares deeply about the world. I enjoy stories - especially history for its rich tapestry of stories of people's lives interwoven intricately in failures and victories. I care so deeply about the world that I also spend much of my time and energy trying to make it better in some way.
