The Ark of the Covenant is in Mt. Kenya

For a long time, people have tried to find the most important items from the Bible, and one of the most wanted is the Ark of the Covenant. This special and holy box was made by the Israelites about 3,000 years ago to hold the Ten Commandments, among other holy objects, and is described as a large, golden chest with angel forms on top. The Ark is linked to countless miracles in the Bible, most notably helping the Israelites during the Exodus and the miraculous conquest of Jericho.

According to historical records,  between 597 and 586 B.C., the Babylonians took over and the Ark, which was in the Temple in Jerusalem, disappeared. Some say it might have ended up in Ethiopia, but no one has been allowed to study it.

Outside Ethiopia, the fate of the Ark of the Covenant is one of the great mysteries of history. Some say it was destroyed beyond recognition when the Babylonians demolished the Jerusalem temple. Others report that it was carried away by the Babylonians and the gold melted down. Nevertheless, almost 45 million Orthodox Christian Ethiopians firmly believe that the Ark of the Covenant was taken by Queen of Sheba’s son, almost 3,000 years ago, to Ethiopia.

The Bible gives a gives a glimpse that it was whisked away from Jerusalem by Prophet Jeremiah. In the book of Maccabees 2:4-10, written around 100 BC, says that the prophet Jeremiah, being forewarned by God before the Babylonian invasion, took the Ark, the Tabernacle, and the Altar of Incense, and buried them in a cave, informing those of his followers who wished to find the place that it should remain unknown”, he said, “until God finally gathers his people together and shows mercy to them.

That is indeed a promise that The Ark is somewhere waiting to be revealed at the right time. Could it be that the rendezvous is Tigray, Ethiopia? Word goes round in the intelligence briefs that some global forces with ill intent have been sure, for many years, that it is the original Biblical one, and have  been attempting to snatch it or get it destroyed. The reports point to that pursuit as the genesis of the war and instability in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.

Another idea is that it’s hidden under the First Temple in Jerusalem, but that area is sacred in Islam, so digging there isn’t possible.

There are other less believable claims, and even a famous movie, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” where Indiana Jones looks for the Ark before the Nazis can use it for power and world domination. Archaeologist Fred Hiebert says it’s interesting to search for these ancient items, but it’s hard to prove if what’s found is really the original Ark from the Bible. He thinks these stories are a mix of myth and reality, and the scientific method may not be enough to prove or disprove them.

The True Location of the Ark

In this article, we help you trace the true location of the Covenant Box (the Ark of the Covenant). This holy treasure has been at the top of Mt. Kenya since 1210 AD, kept as a big secret and only known by a few Agikuyu, Ameru & Aembu elders who have been praying there and offering sacrifices to God.

The connection between Historical and Biblical Data:

In Luke 11:29-32, Jesus mentions a lady who is undoubtedly Ethiopia’s Queen of Sheba. “… the queen of the south will rise with the men of this generation and she will condemn them… she came from the ends of the earth to hear the Wisdom of Solomon, and there is something greater than Solomon here…”

Lovingly known in Ethiopia as Makeda, the queen is earlier mentioned in 1 Kings 10: The Queen of Sheba (or “Queen of the South”) had heard about Solomon’s fame and his relationship with the Lord, so she came to Solomon with a list of deep questions, and an intention to learn about the One True God. According to the scriptural accounts, Solomon answered all her questions.

According to Christian Ethiopians, upon visiting Jerusalem, Sheba was seduced by Solomon (listed as one of his many concubines), and gave birth to their son, Menelik. King Menelik I became the first in an unbroken dynasty of Ethiopian rulers.

When Menelik I grew older, he would end up journeying back to Jerusalem to visit his father Solomon and reportedly took the Ark of the Covenant with the permission of the Levite priests, and had it taken to the king’s palace and later to Tigray region, where it was secured in St. Mary of Zion Church, Aksum. Here, it was attended to by undefiled (virgin) priests, and guarded by Tigray soldiers.

African elders are never in a hurry when it comes to divulging their history. After many years of silence, they are revealing the proto- Gikuyu akin to the present Gikuyu community and who, before the year 1210AD,  were known as ” Kabiru” (Hebrew).

The Elders are letting out the 800-year secret regarding the Ark of the Covenant. Here is their narration:

The famous King Solomon had built the equally famous Jerusalem Temple to house the covenant box permanently. However, he married foreign wives who introduced the worship of foreign gods into the Temple dedicated to the God of his father David.

By design, Queen Makeda of Sheba (in Hebrew, Sheba is the feminine for seven, hence magical or captivating) arrived at Solomon’s Court to learn the principles of God and true worship. Learning she did, but another result of the visit was a child born to the two, Prince Menelik 1. Upon reaching 19 years, he went to visit Solomon after Queen Makeda’s death.

When Menelik was about to return to Ethiopia, King Solomon wanted a duplicate of the Ark to accompany Menelik for prayers, considering the great distance from the Temple in Jerusalem.

However, Prince Menelik I was concerned about the sanctity of the genuine Ark because Solomon had placed idols in the Temple alongside the Ark at the request of his pagan wives. Menelik and his followers devised a plan to exchange the Arks, allowing Menelik to take care of the real one. Initially, the men ensured that the priests were intoxicated from wine. Then Menelik executed the swap, and a group of Jews accompanied him back to Abyssinia (Ethiopia) with the authentic (original) Ark.

His entourage, with the consent of Levites, transported the covenant box to Sheba (Sheba in this context is revealed as Ethiopia). King David, King Solomon’s father, had a presentiment that the covenant box should never remain in Jerusalem (Psalms 68:31).

the sons of Ham shall come, the great men out of Egypt, to be made proselytes; the children of Cush (or Ethiopia) shall run to stretch out their hands in prayer to God. ”

After years of temporarily being in the king’s palace, the covenant box was finally laid to rest in Axum.

So, the Agikuyu Elders & Seers, through their messenger Mr Samuel Kamitha, confirm that indeed, the Ark of the Covenant left Jerusalem and came to Ethiopia, in the year 950 B.C.

Around the year 1210 AD, the Covenant Box left Axum, Ethiopia….

They had to leave Axum because Tunyaga (the people of the Cross) or Nguo Ndune (the red costumes) -reffering to the Knight Templars-  had plotted to steal Managi and Ikunjo (scrolls).

With its extensive history of Judaism and Christianity, Ethiopia asserted ownership of the coveted religious artifact, the Ark of the Covenant, desired by major religions. The Vatican was aware of this assertion, leading to speculation that, as Christianity’s representative, the Vatican sought to possess the world’s holiest artifact. The Knight Templars were on a thirsty quest to steal the Covenant Box.

While escaping to conceal the treasure, a war broke out and extended all the way to Thagana (Tana Island). From Tana Islands, the conflict reached the Somalia coast, Kaya Forests, down to Kwale in Kenya. In Digo, aalong the Kenyan coastline, a fake covenant box was designed, then shattered into pieces, diverting attention from the original Managi (Agikuyu term meaning ‘treasure’), which was believed to have been similarly fragmented to downplay interest in the search.

Despite this, the war intensified as it moved towards the mainland Kenya. The Kabiru hastily buried Managi and the scrolls in undisclosed locations atop Mount Kenya. To further hide their tracks from the Templars, they changed their name from ‘Kabiru’ to ‘Agikuyu’.  They recount how the proto-Gikuyu settled to become the present communities around Mount Kenya, while others remained in the Coast Province area. This war spanned two generations, fulfilling the prophecy of King David, who said, “The Ethiopians will raise their hands in prayer to God.” As a custom, the Agikuyu positioned their doors to face Mount Kenya, and in prayer, they raised their hands towards Mount Kenya. This brings to mind Exodus Chapter 19 and 20 in the Old Testament.

The provided description indicates that the early Kabiru were in conflict with the Templars of the cross and red costumes, reminiscent of the croix patlée, the Templars emblem adopted after the Troyes Synod. According to the Seers’ timeline, the relics were likely buried around 1210 AD. Following this period, the Agikuyu established a protective presence to safeguard their treasure, effectively restricting access to the Mount Kenya region, which explains why the infamous slave trade did not occur in that area, and generally all round Mt Kenya.

Before the Kabiru soldiers hid the Ark of the Covenant on top of Kenya’s highest mountain, Mount Kenya, in 1210AD, this mountain was known as ‘Kirima gia Thaayu-ini’, or simply ‘Thaayu-ini’ translating to ‘Mount of Peace’ or ‘Abode of Peace’. The Agikuyu term ‘thaayu-ini’ is the origin of the Biblical and Hebrew term ‘Zion’ or ‘Sion’. It is also important to note that the name ‘Hebrew’ also originated from the Kikuyu name ‘Kabiru’, pronounced as ‘khabiru’.

After the Covenant Box was hidden in the fourth dimension in Mt Kenya, the original name of the mountain was changed to ‘Kirinyaga’, which means ‘Mountain of signs and wonders’.

Seers vividly recount how the Ark of the Covenant was laid to rest in the fourth dimension near ‘Kigongona Kia Mai,’ a water tabernacle now known as the Triple S, TSC shrine in Mount Kenya. Equally important to the Kabiru fighters were Ikunjo (Coptic scroll or primitive Tola), concealed in two different sites renamed 1KB and IKC. The Seers emphasize that the Triple S, TSC site is off-limits to research, but excavation and responsible citing could be considered for 1KB and IKC, followed by a reburial in accordance with the law of silence.

The Seers, who are the guardians of Mount Kenya wisdom, caution researchers that before any excavation, the writer must consult with Ethiopian Seers in Axum and Tana Island. It’s no coincidence that Mr Samuel Kamitha was directed to these Seers, as traditionally, Mount Kenya Seers safeguard the relics in trust since Kenya was annexed from the Empire of Abyssinia (Ethiopia) in the 20th Century.

Why are the Agikuyu Seers Revealing the Old Secret that the Ark of the Covenant is at the Top of Mount Kenya?

The elders reveal that the time for its public revelation is almost near, by God’s divine plan, to achieve His divine will for the world.

Who is Mr. Samuel Kamitha?

It would take acres and hectares of words to manifestly shed light on who Mr. Samuel Kamitha really is. Allow us to just briefly analyse the profile of Mr Kamitha, who is the messenger of Mt. Kenya’s Chief Seer, and the director of Gikuyu & Mumbi Cultural Museum. By knowing Mr Samuel Kamitha, humanity will, for the first time,  have a glimpse of the African science as known to the African sages and seers. Mr. Samuel Kamitha is a trained taxidermist  and cultural anthropologist. As a  cultural anthropologist, Mr Samuel Kamitha is an accomplished  pundit specializing in the systematic study and analysis of diverse human societies, with a particular emphasis on understanding cultural practices, beliefs, social structures, and historical developments within those societies. His prowess & knowledge is not just on an intellectual and academic level, but also a supernaturally divine and spiritual  degree.


Betweeen 1988-1997 (World Cultural Decade), Mr. Kamitha was was contracted to research on how to protect Mount Kenya forest from overexploitation.  He based his research on the strength and firm belief that the local community had useful knowledge and understanding on how to keep the forest sustainable. According to Mr. Kamitha, for millennia the local community had utilized Mount Kenya as a renewable source of firewood, grazing and farming. Unfortunately, as historical forest management knowledge was lost with time, so was Mount Kenya’s sacredness. His research, focusing on culture and development, aimed to use collective memory to balance resource use. To do this research, he worked with local elders who are like living encyclopedias of African life and traditions. From 1990 to 1992, he collaborated with the Gikuyu elders to gather traditional methods for managing the local environment. Mr Samuel Kamitha steered his study with the goal that once the knowledge is accessible, it can be utilized to educate a previously uninformed community, serving as the initial stage in crafting policies. In 1993, in recognition and through the recommendation of the same elders, Mr. Samuel Kamitha was elevated to the Mount Kenya College of Seers. After uttering his clan as a “Munjiru” (the rightful clan of seers), Mr. Kamitha underwent a spiritual initiation in the college of seers, where he gained extraordinary wisdom. In a nutshell, this is the process that Mr. Kamitha went through to mark  his recruitment to the prestigious college of seers, and the Divine role of Chief Seer (Mugo wa Kibiru)’s messenger.

He was made to fast for 40 days under the watchful eyes of the elders. Initiated up to the last 35th level of seer’s ladder in the esoteric wisdom, he passed the test of water, air, soil and fire in reference to Mountains Kirinyaga (Mt Kenya), Nyandarua (Aberdare Ridges), Kianjahi (Ol Donyo Sabuk) and Kiri Mbiruiru (Ngong Hills) to complete the seer’s sign of the cross. He was put on a three days herb-induced sleep known as three days death. The last herb known as the tree of life awakened him. By the time he regained consciousness he had acquired a pinnacle of unnatural/extraordinary wisdom. Mr Kamitha had also reached the state of no desire. Mr Kamitha also acquired an instant understanding of the nature of departed spirits. This is one of the twelve disciplines in the cluster of Gikuyu Wisdom. He was given a stars name like all seers and honoured with a seer’s muthigi -staff. Once the initiate is bestowed with muthigi staff, he is ritually added “an extra 30 years”– This signifies that he does not interact with his age mates because he is senior to them by 30 years.

Mr. Samuel Kamitha’s conventional education has helped him  in understanding the world of seers in a positive way. Though their wisdom lacks vocabularies and terminologies in a narrowed down process, the result is so precise and magical beyond comprehension in the world of logics. In the summary of who is Mr. Samuel Kamitha, this messenger of Mt. Kenya’s Chief Seer is a person deeply involved in cultural preservation and research, with a focus on the Gikuyu people and their traditions. He has held significant positions in cultural organizations and has contributed to global discussions on culture and conservation in high positions. Mr Kamitha reports that he is open to collaborations with universities and research centers in areas of research. He became the Director-General of the Gikuyu and Mumbi Cultural Museum, and his work was recognized by UNESCO, a global organization. In 2007 he organized Jubilee Cultural Ceremony of the three Mt. Kenya communities (Meru, Embu and Gikuyu). The ceremony traces the history of God’s Ark of the Covenant from Axum, Ethiopia, to Mount Kenya where it was put to rest in 1210 AD.

Over the years, he held various positions, including being appointed to various committees related to culture and conservation. He also organized cultural events and prayer drives around Mount Kenya, most notably the Mt. Kenya Prayer Walk which he kickstarted in 2008. In 2010, he became the National Chairman of the Kenya Culture and Council of Elders Association. Mr Samuel Kamitha is also the author of  Secrets of the Holy Mountain book. This book was plagiarized by Marvel Studios & Disney to script the blockbuster film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.  There is an active lawsuit for this plagiary, justice being pursued by Qadree El-Amin (former BOYZ II MEN manager and Michael Jackson’s promoter), and US Hip Hop producer Prince Michael. The two stars visited Mr Samuel Kamitha in October 2018 and undertook the Mt Kenya Prayer Walk with the Chief Seer’s messenger & the Principal Elders. During the beautiful occasion, Qadree El-Amin was given a Kikuyu name, Mungai, while his associate Prince Michael was christened Muchiri.

Mr. Kamitha has been active in sharing his knowledge through electronic and print media. He hosts talk shows, contributes to radio programs, and occasionally appears in local newspapers. His work is aimed at preserving and promoting African culture and wisdom, especially that of the Gikuyu people. Its in the  community’s, Africa’s, and indeed the world’s interests that Mr. Samuel Kamitha should go back to radio and print media to disseminate the wisdom of the Anjiru Clan sages and seers, and the messages of Mt. Kenya’s Chief Seer to the world.
