There was a feature story about the sect on Kameme TV sometime back. Look it up.

I don't think they oppose Christianity. They just follow what the old testament says whereas other Christians tend to follow the new testament

They are Christians. One of their most popular hymns is Jesu ni Mukuuri. In fact a popular adage says their name Mukurinu originated from their greeting each other "Mukuuri nu (who is the saviour)?" and the respondent would answer "Ni Jesu".

It's amazing how nobody seems to know their origin or much about them and that is what fascinates me about them.
Seems to me more of a cult that you have to be born into than anything else.

Interesting...
Because someone else told me that " mukuri nu?" was basically a statement of their disdain for Jesus Christ the saviour.
Basically a denial of Jesus Christ as a saviour.

just like most other religions even the akurinu would probably not answer your question... just follow blindly
But it has its origin in Kikuyu land and it can't be older than the colonial era so some African must have started it.
I think it's a secretive cult hiding behind the teachings of the old testament.
