Naandi (Nandi, Kalenjin) love poem, in the language of kalenjin group of the 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 were farmers and livestock breeders. Women performed most of the agricultural work and milking of dairy cows. They were patrilineal and were grouped by segments in localized clans. Marriage, as in many breeders' societies, implied an important matrimonial compensation with livestock. From the political organization, only certain individuals were distinguished by their ritual functions (soothsayers). The Nandis were distributed according to a complex system of age classes of cyclic type.
