Katunge is a girl’s name in the Kenyan Akamba Bantu tribe. This song tells the story of a girl, Katunge, that leaves her village with the help of her village people to go and seek higher education in the city. She, unfortunately, has never come back. Her failure to return is under unknown circumstances. The persona asks in the song, “Katunge, where did you go?”, in the Akamba language. It is a sad story of lost love and a longing for the love to be rekindled.
