WELCOME TO THE KISUMU SITE

 

Welcome to the KISUMU  Site which is dedicated to the people  who were or are residing in Kisumu   (Kenya). Kisumu is a town on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya –East Africa. Most of us remember Kisumu with great fondness due to various reasons. The site has e-mails of residents and ex-residents who are now spread all over the world. With the help of the Internet we hope to re-establish the old contacts via the e-mail.



Apart from that, this site has history of the town, news, pictures and links to other related sites. If you have had any links with Kisumu or the surrounding villages, you are invited to e-mail your name and other details, such as the year you were at school in Kisumu. Any old or new pictures from Kisumu will be greatly appreciated and will be posted on this site if relevant. Any suggestions regarding improving the site are also welcome. We hope that you will find this site helpful in restoring the old friendship and making new friends from the old Town! In the past we have had meetings of ex-residents of Kisumu being held in London. Needless to say that most of the time  the hall where these  meetings have been held turned out to be too small due to the sheer number of people attending. We hope to keep you posted of any further meetings.
