Kisii is a municipality in south-western Kenya. It is a major urban centre in the Gusii Highlands and the second largest town in greater Nyanza after Kisumu City. The town was originally known by the Gusii people as Getembe, but it was later named Bosongo to refer to the British who lived in the town during colonial times. It was established by British soldiers retreating from German forces at Lake Victoria during World War I. Later Kisii was chosen to be the District Headquarters of the larger South Nyanza and Kisii region. Today it is the capital of Kisii County. The town has a population of over 200000, predominantly inhabited by the Gusii community, a Bantu people. The Luo, Luhya, Kuria, Asian and Kalenjin make up a minority of residents. Kisii enjoys a tropical highland climate, and annual average temperatures vary from 11 to 26 degrees Celsius. The town’s economy runs primarily on commerce and agriculture. Crops and fruit cultivated in the area include maize, beans bananas, pineapples, avocados and pawpaws. Although it has few industrial activities, it has the potential for larger Agric-based industries due to its location in a rich agricultural area.

Kisii is the fastest growing town in western Kenya thanks mainly to its high population, political stability and general tranquillity. Like many of Kenya’s major urban centres, there’s an influx of numerous other business ventures – the hospitality sector with hotels, bars, restaurants, sports pubs, among other commercial activities; commercial banking and financial institutions’ branches. Public transportation is available throughout the town, served by private-owned taxis (matatus), taxi cabs and ‘boda-boda’ (motorcycle taxis) as an alternative to privately owned vehicles. Kisii town has one of the most organized bus stations and public transport systems in the country. Buses and matatus are not allowed inside the town. Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital is the largest government-owned health facility in the county. It is also home to Kisii University, and campuses of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology University of Nairobi. It offers students several options as far as higher education is concerned.
