  1. Many years ago I attended college with an African student named: Muygwi Nuanjui. I am trying to learn the tribal source of this proud name and what it translates to in English.

    • Ok ok ok! I don’t even know what to say!! Africa is a continent – which has a LOT of countries in it. There is NO language called AFRICAN.
      Research countries within Africa THEN learn about what languages are spoken there and you can then google “common X-language” names.
      It’s really not that hard! You just have to really get into it. Learn something new…don’t just generalize!!!

  2. I just want to know my roots
