The Wanga or Abawanga are a nation of the Luhya people & a historical Kingdom within present-day Kenya. The first national flag ever to be flown in Kenya is part of the artifacts here in the museum at Nabongo Cultural Centre along the Mumias-Busia road in Matungu. Flown by Joseph Thompson in 1883, Being the most famous king of the Wanga, Nabongo Mumia’s royal garment is encased resplendently beside the flag. Just beside it lie other royal regalia worn by the king during formal kingdom duty. They include a leopard skin and headgear placed strategically beside the royal stool. Beside them are other stools used by elders of the kingdom during official functions.
