Nakuru County Postal Codes For All Areas and Districts

It’s no news that most leaders of the world chose to section or divide their countries into geographical regions (counties) for easy administrations and Kenya is not left out in this modern way of structuring. In 2010, the Kenyan government, under the 2010 Constitution of Kenya recognized a total of 47 counties in the country. The size and boundaries of the counties are based on the 47 legally recognized districts of Kenya.

Nakuru County is the 32nd out of the 47 counties in Kenya and it is not just one of the largest but also the third most populated counties in the country. Nakuru County has a total of eleven sub-counties under it and each has areas and districts under them with specific postal codes, here is a list of them.

What Is A Postal Code And What Is It Used For?

A postal code comprises of a set of letters, digits, or a combination of both, which may include a space(s) or punctuation, included in a postal address for the purpose of sorting mail.

The term ZIP code is majorly used in the United States of America but other countries of the world have different names for it. For instance, Canada calls it postal codes, The Czech Republic refers to it as Postal Routing Numbers. In India, it is Postal Index Numbers, PIN,

The idea of using codes to sort out mails into regions and areas began in the US when the Post Office Department was faced with the challenge of handling a high volume of mails daily. To make the work easier, they began categorizing the U.S. into well-defined areas for easy identification and delivery of mails. The codes came in 5-digit numbers and represent individual post offices throughout the United States. The five digits are divided into three major parts, the first represents the national area, the second part represents the region or city, and the third represents the delivery area.

This system was later adopted by other mail delivery agencies around the world and has aided organization, efficient sorting, and easy distribution of mails. Kenya’s postal codes system is similar to what is obtainable across the world. The same way postal services in other countries of the world are saddled with the responsibility of allocating codes to zones and areas, the Kenyan postal service allocates each zone with their individual ZIP/Postal codes.
