The Wardei are Cushite in descedant. They come from Somali and Orma origin. The Somali people took the Orma people as slaves and they eventually lost their language and culture. The Somali people and the Orma people refused them so another tribe called Wardei was born.
They live in Garissa and Tana River County in Kenya.
They are Nomadic pastoralists they keep goats, cows and camels. Their houses are huts that can be moved and packed on a camel or donkey. They have recently begun to settle down more in the last few years.
The Wardei are predominantly Muslim.
Pray that they would turn to Jesus and see their need for a Savior!
