Embu & Mbeere - feature articles

The White Stone of Kathigagaceru, by Sammy Kaunga. An article about the construction of a church next to a sacred Mbeere stone, which presumably marked the centre of a sacred grove (matiiri), or else was contained within one. The tone is very much of the Christian faith-overcomes-the-heathens school of thinking.
