Many years ago before Europeans set foot in Kenya, a Kalenjin prophet spoke of an iron snake that would be slithering its way across the land devouring cattle and causing destruction along the way. He said the beast would bring a foreigner who would rule over the local population. The iron line turned out to be the Kenya Uganda railway line or the Lunatic express.
The railway line was constructed when the Europeans where scrambling for Africa towards the end of the 19th Century. At the time they had trading posts along the cost but few had ventured into the hostile interior of country. The construction of the Kenyan railway began in the Port city of Mombasa in 1896. It was completed in 1901 at the lines terminus in Kisumu. Operations on the line commenced in 1903. The Lunatic Line linked Kampala in Uganda with the Indian Ocean town of Mombasa.
