About the Gikuyu language
The Gikuyu people belong to the Bantu group. They reside in the Central Province of Kenya. They are over 6 million of them in number. Their main pre-occupation is cash crop farming (especially coffee and tea) and dairy farming. They are also business oriented. Three-quarters of the community are Christians. Pockets of Islam and traditional religion do exist. The first Gikuyu Bible was published in 1951. The change in the language over the years necessitated a new translation of the Bible. This was started in 1983 and ended in 2002. The new Bible was launched in 2008 and was an instant hit with the community. ku
