Taita Taveta County holds a remarkable place in World War history
By PHILIP MUYANGA
As the world prepares to mark the First World War centenary celebrations, Taita Taveta County is planning special activities, thanks to the important role the county played during the war.
Taita Taveta holds a special place in the First World War East African campaign, as it was one of the scenes of clashes between the British and Germans in the region. In fact, many of the battlefields, such as Salaita Hill, remain largely undisturbed, with bunkers and trenches still visible.
