Kibajuni language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and History
Also known as Tikulu, Kibajuni is a Swahili variety spoken by the Bajuni people who occupy the tiny Bajuni Islands and coastal Kenya, as well as parts of southern Somalia, where they form a minority ethnic group. Collectively, the Bajuni people refer to themselves and are known as Wabajuni. They speak Kibajuni, a Bantu Swahili language dialect.
The Bajuni tribe primarily occupied the small Bajuni Islands in the Somali Sea. Others traditionally inhabit Kenya, largely in Mombasa and other towns in that country.
In 1991 after the collapse of the Somali government, the Bajuni people suffered neglect by both the Kenyan and the Somalia governments. The Bajuni’s refer to this period as "The Troubles”.
The Bajuni clan trace their origins way back to the Khoisanoid hunter-gather groups and immigrants like Persian, Arab and Somalis. Some also have traces of the Indonesian ancestry. Their origins and diverse groups primarily refer to the descendants of slaves called Jareer that were enslaved by Somali merchants.
The Bajuni’s conduct and follow the laws of Islam and their affairs. Almost all of them are Shafite Muslims. Their lives circle around the mosque and 5 times of daily prayer.
Kibajuni has another distinct dialect called Maho it was classified as a Northern Dialect of Swahili.
