The Mijikenda Kaya Forests in Kenya consist of 11 separate forest sites spread over some 200 kilometres along the country's coast. In Kenya, these forests are sacred and have historical, religious and cultural value for the Miji Kenya people. In the first of our five-part series, David John Bwakali visits one of these sacred forests.
