Muthenya wa Kimakia Ciana – Halooween in Kenya


Halooween in Kenya,
Yes there is halloween in kenya in my village it was dubed Muthenya wa Kimakia ciana (The day of scaring Kids). When I asked my mum about the history of the day she said it came from the wazungus – White colonial rulers. So did we wear masks and trick and treat? No, the only thing we would have is a mischief night where we would play pranks on each other with aims.
And that is all I remember of Halloween in Kenya
