Nairobi Estates where Kambas love to live

The Kamba community is found majorly in three counties Machakos, Makueni, and Kitui.

However, there are counties neighboring Ukambani where the Kamba community can be found although not in large numbers. These counties include Taita Taveta, Murang’a, and Embu counties among others.

A spot check by this writer has shown that in Nairobi City, the community has shown a liking for specific towns for dwellings.

When visiting these places you may think you have landed in Kathonzweni, Kangundo, or any other popular place in Ukambani.
