Every tribe in Kenya has its own superstitions, some better known than others. Bees circling the head mean news, good or bad, within two days. A dog or a cat crossing one’s path is unlucky. Colors can be lucky or unlucky: black is considered a “cool” entity, and therefore welcome; red is considered a “hot” entity, so is not so propitious. Red is also the color associated with modern-day Kenyan funerals, when red ribbons are tied to all the vehicles in the procession.
