Mende Unicode Script
The Mende Kikakui script is a syllabary used for writing the Mende language of Sierra Leone. It was devised by Mohamed Turay (born ca. 1850), an Islamic scholar, at a town called Maka. One of Turay's Quranic students was a young Kuranko man named Kisimi Kamara. Kamara was the grandson of Turay's sister. Kamara also married Turay's daughter, Mariama. Turay devised a form of writing called 'Mende Abajada', which was inspired in part by the Arabic abjad and in part by the Vai syllabary.
