County begins World War 1 commemoration

Taita-Taveta, Kenya: As Kenyans mark one hundred years since start of World War 1 (WW1), Taita-Taveta County residents have received the centenary commemoration with a mixture of excitement and sadness.

Excitement, because they consider it a great honour for the county to host such a historic event, yet sad since the commemoration brings back distressing memories of the misery and suffering they were forced to endure as a result of two powerful foreign armies fighting in Taita Taveta.

The region was one of the epicenters of fighting between British and German forces and the devastating effects of WW1 are still evident in parts of Taita Taveta County.
