Interesting facts about Nyeri
After Meinertzhagen’s British temporal victory, a decision was reached to site a British post close to a little hill on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. The Kikuyu called the hill Kia-Nyiri while their Maasai neighbours called the hill Na-aier. The post took its name from the little hill. On 18 December 1902, Nyeri was founded.
Nyeri is and has been home to some great and notable men and women that have framed our world, all who made our immediate neighbourhood their home.
