Mũmbi is a mythological figure regarded as the mother of the Gĩkũyũ people. The word Mũmbi can be translated as "one who moulds". She was the wife of Gĩkũyũ, and ancestor to all the Agĩkũyũ people. The story of Gĩkũyũ and Mũmbi has been recorded by various writers throughout the Gĩkũyũ history; notable among them are Jomo Kenyatta, the first president of independent Kenya, Louis Leakey and the prolific Gĩkũyũ writer Gakaara wa Wanjaũ and another Gĩkũyũ writer known as Mathew Njoroge Kabetũ among many others.

The suffix "i" replaces the terminal "a" in the Bantu language noun or verb to create the name for the performer of the action.Being derived from a Bantu root, the word Mumbi is also widely used by the Kamba ethnic community.
