Derived from Lucy Kibaki - sort of a Kikuyu flavor of the name "Lucy" with the Swahili prefix "ka". Lucy Kibaki is wife to Kenya's third president - Mwai Kibaki. This word came about in 2003 when Central Bank of Kenya, issued a 40 Shilling coin to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Kenya. It bears the bust of Mwai KIbaki but interestingly, Nairobi youth decided to name it after his wife and not him!
