Short Excursions from Kisumu City, Kit Mikayi Bus Tour, Short Excursion Safaris

In This Kit Mikayi tour from Kisumu we get to learn more about the legendary story behind Kit Mikayi which in Luo dialect means “the stone of the first wife” is that: Long time ago, there was an old man by the name Ngeso who was in great love with the stone. Everyday he wakes up in the morning, he could walk into the cave inside the stone and stay there the whole day, and this could force his wife to bring him breakfast and lunch everyday. The old man became passionately in love with this stone to the extent that people ask the wife his whereabouts, she could answer that he has gone to his first wife (Mikayi) hence the stone of the first wife (Kit Mikayi). More further explanation about this unique stone is that according to its feature and components, the structure represents the Luo cultural polygamous family which had the first wife’s house (Mikayi) built further in between on the right hand side was the second wife’s house (Nyachira) while the third wife’s house (Reru) was built on the left hand side of the homestead.

Kit Mikayi is also seen to have a nuclear family whereby the father (Ngeso) being the middle stone followed by the bulky Mikayi (first wife), then Nyachira (second wife) followed by Reru (third wife) and further in front they have the child which is representing Simba (which is the house for the first born boy in the homestead). From a long time, this stone has been a sacred place for the villagers to worship during the trying moment.
