banyala ba ndombi
Although originally one people with the Abanyala ba Magero (Busia), Abanyala ba Ndombi (Kakamega) have since acquired a new cultural identity and phonology that little remains to identify them with their kinsmen of Busia. To distinguish between the two Nyalas, they are generally known by their once powerful colonial-era chiefs - Ndombi and Magero. Despite sharing a common ancestry, the two Nyalas have only a few common clans. They migrated eastwards from Busia centuries ago fleeing interclan wars and floods to settle around Navakholo area of Kakamega. They share the constituency of Lurambi with the neighbouring Abatsotso. According to recorded genealogy, Mukhamba was their earliest known ancestor although his son Munyala founded the sub-nation.
