About Kenyan Githeri

Githeri is a Kenyan-born food that is comprised of maize, beans, spinach or cabbage all together. It is hailed of being a whole meal because it is a balanced diet. Every household can customize the githeri by cooking it in their own unique style.

Githeri is readily available in local hotels famously referred to as Kibandaski.

It is cheap for a normal meal and gained popularity during the Kenyan August 8 elections. One man called Martin Kamotho was photographed carrying a transparent bag full of Githeri.

The queue was long so he bought a bag of Githeri to keep busy. He immediately became a nationwide sensation with many Kenyans joining in taking up Githeri. In fact a dance was formed in honour of Githeri and the Githeri man in the song Kanashika.
