Origins of the word Harambee


Village Elder
The contentious debate is back as a petitioner now wants the word 'Harambee' inscribed on the Coat of Arms replaced with 'Kenya' in a petition filed in the National Assembly. Harambee originated from Indian laborers building the first Railway line from MSA to KSM. I don't know the meaning but it has to do with Hindus. There is also a Hindu god called Ambe Maa and some of us have seen trucks with the wording Jai Ambe.

Should we get rid of it like the way we did with old currency?
