The Luo Lakeside Script was developed by Kefa Ombewa in Kenya between 2009 and 2012 as an alternative way to write the Dholuo language. Numerals were created separately by Paul Sidanidi from Botswama. A font for the Luo alphabet was developed in 2012. They met on Twitter in 2013 and combined their work to create the Luo alphabet. It was publically launched by Kefa Ombewa in an interview on the Kenya Television Network in 2014 (see below).
The alphabet is also known as the Lakeside Script, Luo Alphabet or the African Lakeside Script.
