I have been made to understand that there are communities in Kalenjin who use a four-legged stool when performing their ceremonies.
I have never seen a four legged- stool only the three-legged ones which surprisingly is the standard stool in the whole of black African communities from Nigeria to Ethiopia,from Sudan to South African, from Gabon to Kenya and from Botswana to Chad.
The three-legged stool symbolizes Man wife and God(the three stands).
Three is also a sacred number and we see in the tree-trunk,roots and branches,Egg- the yellow yolk ,the white part and the shell and ,God The Father ,the son and the Holy Spirit in trinity forms!
Stones arranged in fireplace are three and never four.
The Great Kikiyu leader, Waiyaki wa Hinga, the son of Koiyaki Timale ole Lemotaka,the grandson of araap Koiyoki of Nandi Talai linage had a three-legged stool. His wife,Chebo was Ogiot from Kabete.
Have you ever seen a four legged stool or ever used it or could you be knowing what the four legs of the four legged stool stands for? Let's learn together by commenting down below.
