They are people from the Kikuyu’s, Turkana and Nderobo tribes. The Nderobo are the indigenous and most interesting. What is amazing about this tribe is that they have the only pharmacy in that region of Kenya and people with internet access can order drugs from the online pharmacy website. It’s really cool.
The two other tribes are new arrivals from different parts of Kenya, but are of interest in their own right.
