The county has a rich history and folklore that makes it a favourite for cultural tourism. It was originally known as Chich Onuno (Onuno’s market) but it was renamed to Homa Bay by colonialists in 1925 because it was overlooking the then Huma Hills in Karachuonyo. Visitors from overseas pronounced Huma as ‘Homa’ and the residents adopted the name Homa Bay. Administratively, Homa Bay County has eight constituencies which also serve as Sub County administrative Units- Mbita, Ndhiwa, Homa Bay Town, Rangwe, Karachuonyo, Kabondo, Kasipul and Suba.
