Arts, Culture and Sport Walking through Kibra’s Nubian Culture

Nubians settled in Kibra, about five kilometres from the Nairobi City Centre, starting from about 1911, then again in 1917-18. They were originally reserve troops in 17 garrisons aiding the British imperial campaign. Collectively called “Nubians”, they comprise groups such as the Dinka, Muru, Kotoria, Bari, Kuku and Lendu. The Lendu trace their origins to the Congo while the rest, to Sudan.
