Sheu Morobi is also regarded as the “Valley of death” is a steep and overhanging cliff, perhaps 300 m high, located between two hills covered by thick forest, on the Nandi Escarpment. It is regarded with awe and fear by some locals, since, in times past, very old people would, believing themselves to be useless, jump to their deaths here. For some, the leap was not a matter of choice; elders exceeding 100 years in age and women with illicit pregnancies would be taken there and given a little push. Sheu means ‘we go forever”.
