Disappearing World – The Rendilles Of Marsabit

Coastweek-- A Talk and film by Anders Grum at Fort Jesus, at 7.00pm.

Anders Grum, an architect by profession who practiced in Kenya for many years, has a passionate interest in the cultures of Kenya.

In 1974 he took a break from working and decided to go and stay with the Rendille camel pastoralists in Marsabit district to study their way of life, in particular, their houses, settlement patterns and migrations.

In 1976, together with a team from British Granada television, he made a film that was screened as part of the ‘Disappearing World’ series.

Anders is now retired and lives in France but is here for a short visit and has kindly agreed to talk to FFJ about his time with the Rendilles and the making of the film.

After a brief introduction by Anders we will see the film showing aspects of Rendilles communities daily life and the preparations for an important ceremony - nabo - which takes place only every fourteen years, and after which an age-set of young men can marry.

We will see the spectacular ceremony and preparations of one of the marriages. In between, there are brief interviews with a leading warrior, Galgombe, and his uncle Wambile, the leader of the Rendille in 1975.

This promises to be a very interesting and informative evening. Please note early start time: 7.00pm at the Fort Jesus. All are welcome!
