Wahenga na wahenguzi hawakupaka mafuta kwenye tako la chupa waliponena kuwa palipo na wazee, hapaharibiki jambo.

I was sitting with my dad and some of his chaps a few minutes ago and they were saying something that sounded strongly like a hekaya to me lakini hapo siwezi nikawaitisha mbisha.

Apparently there are only two groups of kyuks; those from Murang'a and wale walivuka mto chania wakakuwa wa Kiambu.
Wale wa Nyiri inasemekana are only kyuks by language, eti hao ni Maasais. How true/false is this?
And why is it that kyuks from Murang'a will say "Masaria" and others say "Masharia" (phonetically speaking)

And also there's this Luhya clan calling themselves Bakhayo. Abandu ba ingo, mumborere tsi kari vuadieri (Thats all I know). Apparently they used to be a clan set aside to protect the Maasai's as in provide warriors exclusively like Levites were set aside as priests but on reaching luhyaland decided to settle among the Luo who were there? Even to this day the Luos are still there and some of the Luhyas use some Luo words. How true is the Maasai clan part?




NB: I blame @Meria Mata for showing me I can get answers about our history

Natoka Nyeri and our family on my dads side has Maasai blood, my granddad was pure Maasai, that could explain why our clan has tall people. My daughter asked me what tribe she was nikashindwa kujibu, my dad is half kyuk half maasai, ol lady is Kyuk, my wife is half arab half Mzaramo, what do I tell her?

It's true. I know about five families who live in Nyeri but they have maasai blood. I would advise anybody who is not believing this story to go and do research. Maybe Kikuyus who are from Nyeri and are here do not know they family tree. Years ago kukuyus and maasai,s had no problem of intermainter marriage between them.

we only know our languages not ethnicity, genetic tests will surprise most of us. e.g there is no way a pure kikuyu can be either short and light skinned and tall and dark skinned. most of us are just assimilated

With genetic tests, will it be possible to find a pure kikuyu completely free of say maasai and or embu/meru/mbeere or samburu heritage?

Juu ya hii story, we can just say we are from the tribe of Kenya, subtribe ndio iwe tofauti juu intermarriages are in plenty
And apparently Raila claimed sometime back that his family's lineage is in Luhyaland; something to do with the Wanga kingdom.
