Description

Bungoma County is in the far Western-Rift Valley, on the slopes of Mt. Elgon and the border with Uganda. It was mostly isolated until the Kenya Uganda Railway brought development in the 1920s, and now sits in the middle of Kenya’s sugar belt. The name comes from the Bukusu word “engoma”, which is a drum that the Bukusu Elders used to summon people to meetings; Bugoma means ‘place of drums’.
