Naivasha History

The original name of Naivasha was from the Maasai; “Nai’posha” which means “Rough Water”. It was used to refer to the frequent storms that would frequent Lake Naivasha. The name ‘Naivasha’ therefore is colonial misinterpretation of ‘Nai’posha.’ The area around the town was one of the first to be settled by white people and one of the hunting grounds of the hedonistic ‘Happy Valley’ set. In fact Delamere Estates, originally owned by the eccentric Lord Delamere, surrounds the town.

Nakuru History

Nakuru once dubbed “the cleanest town in East-Africa” was established by the British as a railway outpost part of the White highlands during the colonial era. It received township status in 1904 and became a municipality in 1952. The name ‘Nakuru’ is derived from Nakurro, the Maasai word meaning a “dusty place”.

Nyeri History

The area where Nyeri Town stands was a large part of an uninhabited forested area. The town began from military activity from 1902 to 1905. A fort was built there surrounded by a deep defensive ditch (“Mukaro” in Kikuyu) leading to the present name of the central area of Nyeri Town. On 15th May 1911, Nyeri was gazetted as a Township and established in 1913. In 1933, Nyeri was made the capital of the then Central province. After boundary changes in the Kenya colony, Nyeri Town became the capital of the Kikuyu province in 1934. In June 1954, the Nyeri Urban District Council was created. In 1963 however, the Urban Council assumed a representative nature with election of councilors. Nyeri Town fully became a municipality in May 1971
