Dear sir/madam

RE: REQUEST FOR UNESCO SPONSORSHIP FOR A TRIP TO ETHIOPIA FROM 10TH NOVEMBER TO 25TH NOVEMBER 2003.

I should like to request UNESCO to sponsor my 15 days cultural tour to Ethiopia. I am expected to meet notable elders in Addis Ababa, Axum and Tana Island in connection to:

  • Mount Kenya shrine in relationship to Ethiopian seers visits.
  • Semite or Coptic Relies presumed buried in mount Kenya

Shrine

This is the legendary sacred shrine in Mount Kenya that seers hold in reverence. What constitutes its sacredness is the mode of rituals performed therein the following manner.

The appointed elder when carrying out the rituals in this shrine, has the leg tied to a layana.In case of death in the course of the rituals, his associates pulls him off, for where he stands to perform the rituals, is forbidden to any other mortal. The arch elder pours water on the holy ground to form a triangle. On outer perimeter he forms a square and finally he ends by encompassing the square in a wider circle. Raising his hands up facing the peak of Batian he recites solemn verses from their `kirira’. Besides the water patters he makes a sacrificial fire. This fire is made of dry olive splinters. In the fire he puts wet broken pieces and leaves of `mwemba iguru’ an aromatic creeping plant. As the scented smoke rises up his companions a distance away raises their hands up facing the peak of Batian and recites a call for peace in unison after every verse. This forms their liturgy. Batian was regarded as the communicating points between mankind and God hence the community preference of sacerdotalism. It must be noted there are two routes known to reach this shrine. One comes from the forest upwards.

That, in all our recorded visits, the Gikuyu elders follow .the other route passes through jagged cliff a top the shrine. The latter whose walk seems incredible is known to the elders as `mugiritio wa abaci’ literally ``Ethiopian muscle flexing path’’ or better foreigners route.

The old shrine and the carry over rituals performed were coded by the researchers as TRIPLE S –TSC. Some of this information fits well with the hieroglyphic inscriptions in the pyramid text (Unas) 2300 B.C. however, the greatest achievement of all is that for the first time, the elders are breaking the law of silence otherwise prohibited by their tribal customs and oath on one conditions; that, information revealed shall be kept in the said museum for their posterity and never be passed to the white men .they say for many years the white people had enticed them to reveal what they do and where in mount Kenya. Elders believe power in their kabala and inspiration come from this mountain for God speaks to them through it! (A reference to frequency modulation, In turn their fore fathers dedicated it Him. They say in 1953 colonial forces wanted to set the mountain on strong explosives to make sure their sacred shrine was destroyed. This sentiment concurs well with an account in state of Emergency by Alastain Matheson. The Elders agreed to reveal this treasure of information through bit by bit after they were told of danger of loosing all when they were all dead as there were no age groups ready to take over from them from 2005 AD as required by their office. Those who qualify to take over from them are already `westernized’.

Has the water patters been a creation of planetary laws or do the patters explain a long lost knowledge in astronomy? Prior to making the water patters the arch makes seven clockwise motions, then patters. Finally, he makes seven anti-clockwise motions, one motion representing one planetary orbit.

The Triple S- TSC patterns compare well with the diagram explaining the planetary system from a model in Kepler Museum in the city of Weil der sadt designed by Johanes Kepler (1571-1630) a Dutch astronomer, prior to his major discoveries. The knowledge of these laws made possible the modern conception of world and space travel.

Different schools of thought have emerged in relation to this shrine. One group suggests it might have been used by Egyptians of pre-Dynastic periods as a celestial observatory pad, and at later dates from 1st to 6th Dynasty to commission and modulate the pyramids, hence a high temple of the peak of Isis. In the course of research, it was found, before local medicine men are commissioned, they ascend to Mount Kenya to collect pebbles and `ira’, a whitish substance representing snow or water. These pebbles and `ira’ are believed to have mystic powers to modulate their divining guards. Thus a frequency modulation is created between the mountain and the guard. This mystic power helps the medicine mans word to create event. Another group tends to suggest the shrine might have been marked as a beacon by early Egyptian geographers in an attempt to measure the area of the earth’s surface. It is worthy nothing, the equator, an imaginary line dividing the world into two spheres. North and south, passes through Mount Kenya.

The third group suggest that in the shrine there might have been buried the liturgical treasures from an old Semitic temple. This group has studied the Gikuyu and Jewish languages, traditions, customs, halekhar and kabala.

The Triple S-TSC design; the triangle, square and the circle, is a highly religious liturgical design. The elders say it tells about the origin of form. The sign created the Thing and the word created the Event. This is a reflection of collective memory that recognizes some form of intelligence in the outer space. In their own way, the elders are in reference to morphogenic fields and the cosmic causative agent. But why the water pattern to be made only in Mount Kenya in East Africa by the early Egyptians and our present day seers? Through the works of Dr.L.S.B. Leakey and others, It became known the first man to walk on this planet did evolve in East Africa.

Relics

African elders are not in hurry when it comes to divulging their history. After many years of silence they are revealing the proto-Gikuyu community in central Kenya) come from Baci (Ethiopia) in the place called Hakumu. They had to leave Hakumu because Tunyaga (The cross) Nguo Ntune (The red costume) had conspired to steal Managi (an object of un- presented beauty) and ikunjo (scrolls). In the escape to hide the treasure, war erupted and fought through to Thagana (Tana island). From Tana island the war entered Somalia coast hence the Kaya Forests down kwale. In kwale the managi was presumed to have broken to pieces to down play the interest in the search. The seers say despite that, the war intensified as it took the direction of the mainland. The Abaci hurriedly buried the scrolls in secret locations in Mount Kenya 26 generations before Masai moved south. They recount the Abaci settled down to become the present communities around Mount Kenya. This War lasted for two generations.

With the description given it becomes clear the Ethiopians were fighting the Tempers. The cross and the red costume bring to mind the red Croix patlae, the Tempers emblem adapted after the synod of Troyes. Going by the seers date, the relics should have buried in circa 1210 AD. From this date they settled to guard their treasure and sealed off Mount Kenya area from foreigners. This sheds light of why slave trade did not take place in the Gikuyu country. The community right from birth has never been one ethnic community but a conglomeration of different tribes as they arrived bounded together by their common psyche for a common purpose with no centralized government, But retaining a very high degree of individualism. As a rule they oriented their doors facing Mount Kenya.

Seers narrate vividly how the Managi was laid permanently in Mount Kenya in the vicinity of the Triple S. TSC shrine. Equally of important to the fighting Ethiopians were ikunjo (Coptic scrolls or primitive Tola?) That were buried in two different sites renamed IK B and IK C. The seers say Triple S, TSC shrine will never be excavated but sites IK B and IK C could be excavated and sited responsibly and rebury the contents as required by the laws of silence.

Seers in Mount Kenya have given admonition that prior to excavation the writer must meet the Ethiopian sages in Axum, Tana Island and Addis Ababawithin the dates indicated. It is no wonder that the writer has been referred to the Ethiopian sages. Throughout the history of Ethiopia, Kenya was considered as her southern frontier Province.

The writer

The writer is a member of culture committee in the Kenya National Commission for UNESCO. He is coordinating cultural research programmes in Mount Kenya in areas related to intangible heritage. To his credit, he has been able to decode the otherwise concealed and prohibited heavy wisdom in reference to the stars to the charging in of the seers. As a result it earned him automatic recruitment as a junior elder. He has so far received the 26th oath of office. The elder becomes a seer after the 35th oath of office. It should be noted in Egypt, science and writing were property of Egyptian god Thoth. They were concealed in 35 chambers (disciplines) all put in the Horizon (cruster) of Thoth. Science as we know it today was not accessed to the ordinary folks. The 35th oath and the final the initiate is imparted unfathomed depth of wisdom about the gravity and the speed of mind. This is the highest in the order of esoteric classification. The writer has seen application of this wisdom at work. The writer is receiving heavy wisdom to share at the appropriate time with humanity.

Yours faithfully,

For Gikuyu & Mumbi Cultural Museum
