Ekegusii Bible Revision Project

Ekegusii Bible translators at work

The Ekegusii Bible Revision project is for the Kisii community, also known as Abagusii, which is a community of Bantu speakers who inhabit the two counties of Kisii and Nyamira Counties. According to the 2009 census the

The Kisii people are one of the most economically active communities in Kenya. They grow tea, coffee and bananas. However, the population densities in the area are quite high and therefore most portions of land are quite small. These small portions of land are however very fertile. The Kisii people are either medium or highly educated. Also, the school system in the area is fully established and thus the literacy levels are quite high. However, there is need to develop literacy materials in order to encourage younger members of the community to interact with the language.

 

The Ekegusii community and Christians in that region formally requested BSK to help revise the Ekegusii Bible to remove the minor and major problems that have been noted in terms of language usage in the Bible. Also, they felt that, being an educated community, they will greatly benefit from the value-addition that will be done to that Bible. The Deuterocanonical books when translated will help improve the reading of the Word of God among the Catholic faithful.

The project has had three full time translators and by 2019 all the first revision, team revision, reviewers and translation consultant work has been finalized. The bible has now been typeset and proofread and we hope to launch it in 2020.
