Following the arrival of the white man, many Kenyan communities abandoned their cultures and embraced western ways.
Using cunning, trickery and coercion, the white man was able to get Africans to turn their back on their own cultures. Early colonists knew that if Africans remained steadfast to their cultures, they would find it extremely difficult to control them. As a result, African cultures were labelled primitive and backward. And soon, the core of
African culture - religion - was attacked.
Once the African embraced western religion, it became quite easy to submit to the white man. Education and salvation became the new symbols of status and power.
This book, Mutiiri Mutaarani, is written in Kikuyu and focuses on the traditional customs and beliefs of the Agikuyu community.
