Kenya is named after Mt. Kenya its highest mountain. It is the second highest mountain in Africa after Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. It is a misconception that the name Kenya originated from its first president Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. And whilst the name came from Mt. Kenya, the mountain was not origina…lly called Kenya as Kikuyu locals called it Kirinyaga (mountain of whiteness). British colonialists found it hard to pronounce hence Kiinyaa and later Kenya (Home of the Gods). (MORE)

There are several instances to suggest an increase in religious persecution against Christians in Kenya. While it does not appear to be supported by the Kenyan authorities, the Islamism of surrounding nations seems to have crossed the border.
Its highest mountain, Mount Kenya, is located in approximately the center of the country. The Great Rift Valley runs from north to south through Kenya, separating the Lake Victoria basin to the west from the hills in the east, which slide into the dry grassy lowlands and coastal beaches. Kenya's top…ography forms complex ecological zones, including one called the highland zone. This is a region of rolling uplands characterized by cool weather, abundant rainfall, rich volcanic soils, and dense human settlement. (MORE)
yes, kenya is an LEDC, this is down to low life expectancy, lack of clean water, people are unable to seek medical care and cannot afford an education so people are unable to get good jobs and provide for family.
what is the sea like in Kenya ? also what is around the sea like ? and what short of features are there in seaside hoildays in Kenya?
Yes it does. If you have watched the TV lately or researched online,you will get to know the state of the climate change that is affecting Kenya and the East African region at the moment. Some areas are experiencing more rainfall and extreme heat than usual.
at a guess, the tribes that live there, the wide open plains and the big five which can be found there, such as giraffes, lions, cheetahs, elephants and rhino's.
there are safari's and game drives round Nirobi and many other things too. try going on a Kenyan Travel site for more information.
Yes, Kenya has the four seasons that we have every were but more importantly, there is a wet and dry seson. This is important, because Kenya is one of the worlds most fertile lands.
Not yet, there isn't! On the African continent, I am only aware of McDonald's being present in South Africa, Egypt, and Morocco. Although there are rumors abound that McDonald's will open in Kenya in late 2013, following on the recent opening of KFC and soon-to-be opened Subway. Yes, but as you know… kenyans stank. George Bush established the mc donalds in Kenya, but now we recently found out he hates the blacks. He doesn't let them inside that's why they are all starving. The above is absolute rubbish. there is no mcdonalds in Kenya and we are not starving!! (MORE)

You can fly in with various airlines, or take a boat to the coast, or drive from surrounding countries.
No. Bison refer to those animals found in North America, not Africa. Cape Buffalo are not bison, but they can be found in Kenya. However, due to overhunting, numbers are dwindling.
Most parts of Kenya are very poor, so there is very slim transportation at all. Most of them ride on homemade bycicles and scooters. Where there is transportation, it is usually a public bus or safari Jeep. To transport goods, they usually use shantyboats, which are usually rafts with gasoline-power…ed fans attached to the back. If it is goods arriving from another country, the planes would land on a rugged dirt landing strip, usually in the middle of a dense forest as not to disrupt any of the residents, whereas if it was by boat, they would arrive at a small wooden dock, which is usually difficult to unload goods onto because of its poor structure and building materials.

Swahili is a Bantu language spoken by about 35 million people in Tanzania, Burundi, Congo (Kinshasa) Kenya, Mayotte, Mozambique, Oman, Rwanda, Somalia, South Africa , Uganda, UAE and the USA. Swahili is an official language of Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya and is used as a lingua franca throughout Eas…t Africa. The name Swahili comes from the Arabic word sawÄhil (coasts) and the language contains a lot of vocabulary from Arabic, Persian, Malagasy, English, German and Portuguese. The earliest known manuscript in Swahili, a poetic epic, was written in the Arabic script and dates from 1728. During the the 19th century Swahili was used as the main language of administration by the European colonial powers in East Africa and under their influence the Latin alphabet was increasingly used to write it. The first Swahili newspaper, Habari ya Mwezi , was published by missionaries in 1895. (MORE)
"As part of East Africa, Kenya has seen human habitation since the Lower Paleolithic period. The Bantu expansion reached the area by the first millennium AD, and the borders of the modern state comprise the crossroads of the Niger-Congo, Nilo-Saharan, and Afro-Asiatic linguistic areas of Africa, mak…ing Kenya a truly multi-cultural state. European and Arab presence in Mombasa dates to the Early Modern period, but European exploration of the interior began only in the 19th century. The British Empire established the East Africa Protectorate in 1895, known from 1920 as the Kenya Colony. The independent Republic of Kenya was founded in December 1963."

This is because Kenya is an underdeveloped and has no resources such as petrol and gold etc.... It is too hot there and also because of governments who are dictators wich make a lot of corruptions in the country which is a steady proof of the well-known news ,BBC World news .
Yes. I've seen two in the last three years or so - the second one just a few minutes ago. I have seen many "dust devils" over the past 20 years, but I did not think Kenya had actual tornados until I saw one a few years ago in the great Rift Valley. Today (May 21, 2012), I saw a much bigger stronger …one. It did not appear to be hitting homes. I hope not anyway. (MORE)
Nope. Kenya is a bustling metropolis filled to the brim with space pirates and mercenary dregs. I suggest consulting your nearest SFC Customs Bay to be informed of the happenings in the New Earth Quadrant.
Apart from the magnificent landscapes and the beautiful culture? And superb Tusker beer? And lots of other things I could mention? Were you watching the Olympics or do you live in a cave?
Kenya's name derives from the Kikuyu name for Mount Kenya, Kere Nyaga (Ke-re-nya-ga) meaning 'mountain of God'. According to our elders, when one of the first men appeared in Kenya he met a Kikuyu man and asked him the name of the country and pointed at the mountain. The Kikuyu man mistakenly though…t that he was asking the name of the mountain and said 'Kere Nyaga' which he said quite quickly and came out 'Ke-nya'. After hearing this story it still baffles me why so many colonials called it 'Kee-nya' when the spelling would suggest that is 'Kenya' with only 1 'e' as in 'Ben', 'send' and 'when', not 2 as in 'seen' and 'been' and 'keen' ya?

Kenya wasn't mentioned in the Bible, by name, because it did not become 'Kenya' until 1895 (1920) when England took it over as a colony. It wasn't an independent republic until 1964. Ethiopia , however, is, several times, mentioned in the Bible (2 KIngs 19:9/Esther 1:1/Esther 8:9/Isaiah 18:1/Isaia…h 20:3-5/Isaiah 45:14/) along with Egypt (Genesis 12:10-11)and Libya (Acts 2:10). The land area of what is now Kenya borders Ethiopia, so may have been included, just not by name. (MORE)
