MERIAN EDUCATION (KÍTHOMO KÍA MÚMÍRÚ): English Version

Education is power,
Power that the foreigner bequeathed us,

It shouldn’t be that we forsake our ancestor’s education.
It doesn’t mean those who came before us were uneducated
They made herbal medicines
wasn’t that biological education?
And when we engaged in disputes
didn’t the Njuri Ncheke maintain peace?
That was conflict resolution education
It was political science education.

Not to say we abandon the foreigner’s education,
But as we swallow ‘white’ education, swallow the ‘black’ one too
Learn our ancestor’s culture and values,
Its only then that our roots won’t wilt under the modernization sun.
