Kisumu, Kenya

For the first time ever, an intermediary city, Kisumu City – Kenya, will host the 9th Edition of Africities Summit, from the 17th to the 21st of May 2022. The theme for the 9th Edition is, ‘The Role of Intermediary Cities of Africa in the implementation of Agenda 2030 of the United Nations and the African Union Agenda 2063’.

Kisumu literally means a place of barter trade “sumo” in the Luo language and is locally called ‘Kisumo’. It was the major port of Lake Victoria during the commonwealth of East Africa, then known as Port Florence. The town was founded in the early 19th Century mainly as the main inland terminal of the Asian-built Uganda railway. Asians once formed a quarter of the population of the town, with cultural and infrastructural evidence of this visible to date.
