From Kook Science

Mberikimo (Waberikimo) is an exonym of Kamba (Wakamba, Meric Mungoan) origin for a reported forest-dwelling tribe of African Pygmies in East Africa, described as being three feet (92 cm) or less in height, stories of whom were first related to European audiences by Thomas Boteler in his Narrative of a Voyage of Discovery to Africa and Arabia (1836), and later by the Franciscan missionary Léon des Avanchers via his map Esquisse d'une carte de pays d'Oromo ou Galla (1869).
