Also Known As: Suba,Suba language


The Suba language is the language of Kenya's Suba people. As the Suba number very few to begin with (under 30,000), and the majority have begun speaking Dholuo (the language of the neighbouring Luo people) as their main language, Suba is on the verge of extinction. The remaining speakers are mostly elderly residents on the island of Mfangano. However, efforts have been made to renew teaching of the language (as of 2004), with a goal of having half the Suba population speaking the language within ten years.

There are Suba people in Tarime District of Mara Region, Tanzania speaking a language they call "Suba". It is as yet unclear as to whether this is the same language as the Suba spoken in Kenya...... full article at Wikipedia
