NDIKAUMBŨRA MWOTOTO

Cirenda ndĩũte mwĩhoko, thũ kĩrĩgĩrĩro njage

Thũkũmũ iinyunĩte guoko,kamatimũ na kĩũnũhu cinjũrage

Ndikaumbũra mwototo,kĩama gũgĩkunyanĩra

Njama nĩ nyito;nĩtũĩ kĩhoto nĩ ũira!

Na hiũ mwang’eire mumo, thakame ngati Ngong ĩgĩita gũthahia muma

Kĩmĩiguei ya ngomi mĩraramo;kaburi rĩu na ngũĩ nĩ iraruruma!

Ngũaria cararũkũ, kĩrĩro kĩa mũingĩ kii amu nĩkĩo wakwa hinya.

Rũthekagĩrĩra rwĩ riko rũkũ;irimũ ningĩ nĩ nyingĩ muhuro wa Kenya!

Kũngũra na mahaki nĩguo irenda, ndundu tũtume gũkunyanĩra mũiyũru kenda;

Nĩ ũkoroku wa nda,nĩ ndarega na hinga wa ũici mũtĩ bũrũri-nĩ kũũhanda!

‘wĩ kĩrĩmũ’ nĩguo cinumaga

‘thĩ ĩno ũtarĩ mbia nĩ nyũmũ’nĩguo ci njĩraga

‘Tiga gũte mueke,mĩhũmũ’ kũnyarara na manyiria ititĩraga

‘Wĩtemere harĩa hanoru

Tigana na mũingĩ ndũrĩngatho, arata magarũrũkaga ta rĩa kĩmbu ritho, ngoru.

Matha cia ũkũrũ wa iregi mũrũ,

ũramarũĩrĩra na rĩamũthia kĩrĩndĩ gĩgagũconora na marũrũ? ’

Cirenda ngue ngoro,nde mwĩhoko rũtanatema ruoro

Cimemagia na tuororo;kĩhoto ndakaĩra ngaitwo na makoro;

Ndikaũtahĩka,kana hatĩka-inĩ ndĩumbũre ndĩhonokie.

Nĩrĩkiriĩ ituĩka, Maina, Mwangi na matharaita mũtikĩyumĩrie;

Kaba gĩcambio kĩa ithamĩro, kũnyarirĩka,na gũkwa ku!

kũrĩ ngwatanĩro na cia bũrũri thata gũtuma gũthika mbũtũ iriku!

    1. thanks for writing back.i will try my best to translate the few pieces written in (Gikuyu) not (swahili)in to English, i must warn you though that the content is very militant and political,
      this was the reason in the first place for not translating.But since you have asked for it, i will do it for your sake in the coming weeks.thank you.
