Kikuyu in Star Wars

Here’s a bit of funny trivia for you: what language is the funny co-pilot speaking in this Star Wars clip?

Surprise!! It’s Kikuyu, a language spoken in Kenya. I don’t understand what he’s saying, but after living in Kenya for a few years you can eventually distinguish between lots of languages… he apparently says something like, “Tell those guys over there to come over here.”

      That’s probably what George Lucas thought… haha. It’s so strange to me to hear it in Star Wars because I hear that language every day :)
