Standing up are rock snow peaks hanging high above beautiful Agriculture country of central Kenyan highlands. Many people from different tribes believe that their god lives on the Mountain. Its believed that some people moved from far as Luo land before the coming of Mzungu (Europeans) and came back with prophesying the coming of white men and their religion and weapons especially the Gun.
