Thanks. This is one of the ongoing challenges for small Wikipedias. It helps to keep the focus on them, but also needed, I think, is recruitment of individuals with skills and interest (that's a long discussion). For small projects, one or a few individuals can have tremendous impact - a current example is the Northern Sotho (aka Sepedi) Wikipedia

Whoever it was, they seem to have given up.  There have been zero active editors in the past few months. :(

FYI, the Kikuyu (Gĩkũyũ) Wikipedia has passed the 1000 article milestone, currently with 1321 articles. At the end of January it had only 847.

A quick look at random pages, however, shows many of the pages are single sentence articles on cities. Still, it would be interesting to know more about who has been doing the recent editing, and their plans.

One evident gap is that the interface (commands) has not yet been translated into Kikuyu.
