Ikolomani is found in Kakamega and it is a place where people would go to mine gold. During the time when there were still White settlers in the country, they would call the place a Gold mining but when the locals gave it a corrupted version which is Ikolomani because they couldn't pronounce Gold mining well.

Rodi Kopany

It is a small town in Homa Bay where luos are the majority though other communities are there but little. There was a road company construction in the area and the local residents instead of saying "Road company" they opted for a simpler version which is "Rodi Kopany" .


About Emuhaya it is said that there was once a white man in the area who had a church and would sponsor School children by paying their fees. Whenever he does that to a child he would advise them to "Aim Higher" hence the name "Emuhaya" came to existence.
