Nandi (Naandi) love poem, in the language of kalenjin group of nandi peoples, in Kenya. Nandi (kalenjin) is a southern nilotic language, attached to the eastern Sudanic languages.

The Nandis

The Nandis are a the Nilotic population living in the district of the same name on the Kapsabet side, in the western Kenya highlands. They are farmers and livestock breeders. Women perform mostly agricultural work and milking of dairy cows. They are patrilineal and are grouped by segments in localized clans. Marriage, as in many breeders' societies, implies an important matrimonial compensation with livestock. From the political organization, only certain individuals are distinguished by their ritual functions (soothsayers). The Nandis are distributed according to a complex system of age classes of cyclic type.
