The govering Sturcture
The kikuyus believed that for a govering structure to work there has to be three pillars. Mutongoria (choosen leader), Njamba (warrior) and gitonga (Richman). Those pillars were necessary for the community goverance to be effective. Mutongoria had to show abilty, qualities and gift of leadership, gitonga had to wealthy and be willing to use the wealth for the welfare of the society, Njamba was the ultimate defender of the community against external enemies.
