The area of the extreme southwest corner of West Nile District of Uganda is subject to a major landscape transformation with the establishment of the Zeu Tea Project. The area had been studied for its suitability for tea by Mr. E. Hainsworth of the East African Tea Research Institute. Kericho in June 1967. Even before this survey the Zombo Department of Agriculture Experimental Farm, a short distance southeast of Zeu had one acre of tea, half of which had been planted in 1962 and half in 1964.
