Old Map Of East Africa When Kisumu And Kakamega Was Part Of Uganda

Many East Africans, Kenyans, and Ugandans would be kept in the dark about how Kisumu, Western Kenya, and the Rift Valley ended up on Kenyan territory.

To start, it's crucial to remember that all of today's African nation borders developed as a result of invasions by European powers into the continent for a variety of reasons.

The languages of Africa's numerous groups served as its borders before to colonization.

However, as soon as the Europeans arrived, they tore down every barrier and divided the continent into sections they could govern and protect particular resources.

In the Rift Valley of Uganda and Nyanza, Western Kenya, and other current communities are depicted on an antique map of Kenya.

This happened in 1895, as can be seen on the map below.

All of these regions were in Uganda: Migori, Homa Bay, Kisumu, Siaya, Vihiga, Kakamega, Busia, Bungoma, West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet, Nakuru, Baringo, and L. Turkana (previously Lake Rudolf).

The region of Kenya was expanded and the division of East Africa was revised.
