IBUKU RĨA ŨHORO ŨRĨA MWEGA (GIKCL)
/p 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. The typesetting of the same in a 040 format has also been done resulting in a portable format of the Bible. The Bible Society is also soon embarking on a Gikuyu-English diglot (based on this new version) to cater for a large section of the community including the clergy and professional laity that is involved in various ministries.
