Peoples of Kenya
The Kikuyu came into Kenya during the Bantu migration and nowadays
make up Kenya's most populous ethnic group (7.5 million).
Traditionally, the Kikuyu are farmers; their homelands in the foothills
of Mount Kenya are some of the most intensively farmed areas of the
country. Many of Kikuyu have also become involved in business and politics
(the first president of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta, was actually a Kikuyu).
