The Abasuba community in Kenya: Migration and settlement
-The name “Suba” means “the people who are always wandering”.
-The Suba migrated into their current locations beginning in the mid-1700s. They came from the region just west of Lake Victoria and settled on the islands.They migrated from Uganda and settled on the
two Lake Victoria islands of Rusinga and Mfangano.
-Linguistically, the Suba are highly influenced by the neighbouring Luo, to the point of a language shift having taken place among large portions of the mainland Suba.
-The remaining speakers of the Suba language are mostly elderly residents on the island of Mfangano
