Nyika

Nyika

 

(Wanjika), a people in Kenya, inhabiting the shore regions of Malindi, Kilifi, Kwale, and, in part, Mombasa. Their population, including other closely related peoples (Digo, Duruma, Giryama, Rabai, and others), is approximately 400,000 (1967, estimate). Their language is Kinyika (Nyika), which belongs to the eastern group of Bantu languages. The Nyika were exposed to Swahili and Arabic influence. Most of the Nyika profess the Islamic faith (Sunnite sect); some preserve the traditional beliefs of their ancestors. Their main occupation is farming (including fishing among the Digo and cattle raising among the Duruma). Seasonal migratory work on plantations (sisal and other crops) and in cities is increasing.
