I have noticed most of my followers are not from my native country and that’s great having different views from all over the world is a breath of fresh air i get to know a bit of their cultures and they can learn a bit of mine.Here it goes…
I come from Kenya a country on the eastern side of Africa
we are made up of roughly 42 different cultural communities who have different languages(i know crazy but we manage).This makes us diverse and in a way very accommodating, actually if you compare us to our neighbouring countries we are very cosmopolitan. Apart from the 42 tribes we have various other non natives from all over the world we have expatriates from all over the world who fell in love with the country and decided to be citizens for good .There is a considerable indian population mostly they came to kenya during the colonial era to build the railways and they remained. there are also those who are descendant from the colonialists who remained and made kenya their home.
The most known communities are the maasais pictured below in their traditional dress
Our national languages are English and Swahili,if we all stuck to our languages it would be chaos though we use them informally amongst ourselves
We are on the global radar because of our long distance runners particularly the marathoners they are really good.
the flag has quite a lot of symbolism from the colours to the shield on it.
the colour black represent the people,white is for peace green is for the natural resources we have hand red for the bloodshed during the fight for independence. This was developed as we broke free from colonial rule we were colonised by the British.
we are an agricultural country we do grow tea, coffee and flowers.tea being one of our biggest exports
being an african country kenya is endowed with an abundance of wildlife. so game parks and reserves are quite many. we have one in the middle of our capital city Nairobi this one is quite popular since it’s easily accessible for business travellers who haven’t got much time to tour the country
the other famous park is the mara reserve popular because of the wildebeest migration which is an interesting natural phenomena.
last but not least we have an amazing coastline with white sandy beaches perfect for getaways
that’s it in a nutshell but i still have plenty more i will elaborate that in another post
