The districts of Kenya are divided into 262 divisions (tarafa). Divisions of Kenya are further subdivided into locations. The counties of Kenya are based on the merging of some of the districts on this list and since the divisions are one level under the districts they are the sub-counties. This is due to the fact that Kenya recently changed its constitution and 47 Counties emerged. Here are the divisions listed below, by district (before the change in administration):
