Kisumu is a port city in western Kenya on Lake Victoria and is the third largest city in Kenya, behind Nairobi and Mombasa. Kisumu is of strategic importance, as Lake Victoria also has borders with Uganda and Tanzania.
Kisumu port was founded in 1901 as ‘Port Florence’ as the main inland terminal of the Uganda Railway (nicknamed the ‘Lunatic Express’) running through Kenya linking to Mombasa port on the Indian Ocean.
Kisumu has ‘friendship’ status with Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK and has ‘sister city’ connections with Roanoke, Virginia, USA and Boulder, Colorado, USA.
