History Of Mariakani Town
Colonial time Administration The administrative areas which make up Mariakani today was shared between the Durumas, Giriamas and Kambas. The British colonists considered it more prudent to administer the dominant ethnic groupings separately. The Kilifi county side had a Giriama and Kamba Chief to take care of the interest of the two ethnic groups. Whereas on the Kwale County side, that is Mwavumbo Location, there was another set of two chiefs to represent the Duruma and Kamba tribe. The last of these chiefs were the late Chief Johnson Mwero Mwaiga from Matumbi and Ex-Senior Chief Nzana wa Mumo from Gwasheni. From 1960s and especially after Kenya attained Independence, the practice was discontinued to give way to one chief for the entire Location. The first chief for the Location in Mwavumbo was Mkalla Mwero from Matumbi.
