Emanga Ridge

Emanga Ridge 1

The Abagusii community associate themselves with Emanga ridge which is located at the top of Manga hills in the region. The ridge, which is about 100 acres, divides both Kisii and Nyamira counties marking their boundaries whereby Nyamira county takes the top of the cliff while Kisii takes the lower part. Standing on top of the rocks called Rigena rie Manga, one can easily see the beautiful landscapes of the Southern parts of Kisii up to the lake regions. The ridge also has an endless hole called Engoro ya Manga which is believed to have been connected to Lake Victoria. The area has been earmarked as a historical feature and carries special significance for the Abagusii community. According to 94-year-old Samson Obae, who dwells at the foot of the cliff, Emanga was the first place the Abagusii settled before they spread to other parts of Gusii region.
