Description

Gatubu Washing Station is a member of the larger 670 member Iyego Cooperative that unites communities from across Muranga County. This is the historical heart of Kenya’s independence movement. Whereas neighboring Nyeri is known primarily for coffee, Muranga is also associated with Kenya’s first mission (in Murang’a), first colonial outpost (Fort Smith) and the Mau Mau uprising.

Muranga is also the point in the Aberdare range where snow melt turns into rivers. The eponymic River Maragua, Mathioya, Kayahew, Irati, Muriurio and others have their start in these fertile foothills.
