This translation of portions of the Book of Common Prayer into Dholuo was prepared by members of the Church Missionary Society. Dholuo, also known as Nilotic Kavirondo or Luo, is a Nilo-Saharan language used in Kenya, Tanzania, and in diaspora. It was the ancestral language of the paternal family of Barack Obama. The State Prayers include intercessions for George V as monarch of the Colony and Protectorate of Kenya (the office was abolished in 1963).
This text is identified as No. 92:2 in David Griffiths's Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer 1549-1999 (London: The British Library; New Castle, Delaware: Oak Knoll Press, 2002). It was digitized in 2019 by Richard Mammana from a personal copy.
