Chetambe’s Fort

Chetambe's Fort 1

For any tourist, a visit to the Chetambe Fort is a must because it is where the Bukusu and Tachoni watched the advancing colonialists. It is claimed that Chetambe Ifile, a Tachoni warrior, built the fort on the hill from where he mobilised his troops to resist colonial rule, leading to the 1895 massacre, in which almost 500 people were killed by the British troops. The fort is built behind a protective 12-foot defensive ditch.
