Main Location: 
Maintained mainly by the Luo tribe in the lowlands of Lake Victoria basin in Nyanza and Western provinces.
Origin: 
The Winam are believed to have descended from the zebu brought into Kenya by the Nilo-Hamitic tribes that migrated during the 17th century into Kenya from the north and settled in western Kenya, south of Lake Turkana. Continual cattle raids resulted in admixtures of original breed characteristics (Rege and Tawah, 1999).
