Kilui from Kitangi, Makutano, machakos was over 100 years old. A world war veteran and widower. He lived with his seventh child. Although old, he still has a sense of humour, and sang the male song with a gig. He was one of the surviving Kamba with perforated years and the haircut worn by men from yesteryear. The dress is fashioned the way wore their skins.
