Ekegusii Months Of The Year 

 

 

 

Abaminto we had the opportunity to sit down with omogaka Benjamin Miregwa to explain to us how the Traditional Mwamogusii Homestead was set up. Mzee Miregwa told us that all Mwamogusii houses were round. He also said that the each of the wives in the homeasted was given a specific name. The Homestead was set up as follows:

[ I ]. Mobucha Ibu was always the name of the first wife. Her house was always situated at the centre near the backyard.

[ II ]. Nyamesanchu was always the second wife. Nyamesanchu's house was always to the left of moibori omwabo, Mobucha Ibu.

[ III ]. Bweri Geita was the third wife. Here, her house was always to the left of the gate to the Homestead.

[ IV ]. Bweri Moino was the fourth wife. Her house was always to the right of the gate to the Homestead.

[ V ]. Bweri Rogoro: The fifth wife' s house was always to the right of Mobucha Ibu, behind Bweri Moino's house.

[ VI ]. Centre: Husband's hut directly to the gate. Obweri bw' chiombe was always situated behind the man's hut. Omogaka Miregwa told us that that the man's house was always situated directly to the gate so that he can quickly respond to intruders and protect his family. The obweri was also located directly behind the man's hut in order for him to protect his livestock from thieves and rustlers. 

 

Obweri: In Ekegusii, the Omogusii livestock pen or boma.
