When did Kenya become part of the british empire?

Kenya was part of the British Empire beginning in 1895. It became a colony in 1920 and was granted independence in 1963.

The East Africa Protectorate, which was the area of present-day Kenya, was established in 1895. A legislative council was established there in 1907 to communicate the settlers' needs. The settlers wanted to become a Crown Colony so that their European interests were better represented. In 1920, it became a British colony known as the Colony and Protectorate of Kenya; however, all Africans were excluded from participation until 1944. The colony was a British military base in both World War I and World War II. The British agreed on independence in 1963.
