Rural-rural migration field in Kenya: the case of Kericho tea estates complex in a regional setting



Rural-rural migration field in Kenya: the case of Kericho tea estates complex in a regional setting



Geografiska Annaler 66(2, Series B): 123-134



This paper applies the concept of a 'migration field' to a developing country, based on a survey of migration to the Kericho tea estates complex, Western Kenya. Like the major cities, the Kericho destination has a threefold migration field: international, national, and regional. An important finding in the study is that Rwandese immigrants, due to historical reasons, Western Kenya in-migrants and Nyanza in-migrants predominate in the first, second and third levels respectively.
