according to the Agikuyu oral tradition was the first man to be created by God. He lived all alone in mukurwe was Gathanga.He , just like the bibilical Adam was given permission by his God "Ngai" to look after the land and it's vegitation.

However God found it necessary for him to have a helper, he therefore from nowhere brought him a woman and he named her Gikuyu.

However God had promised to bless them with children , boys for that matter, though under strict instructions. These children were to be boys so that they can give him an expansive generation.

On arrival of the woman Ngai his God had instructed him to take her to the house and lie with her but on the other hand, they did not get into the house and lay under the sacred mugumo tree.

God was displeased with him and blessed him with nine girls instead of boys . Although He still brought them boys to marry them.
