Kenya - With a population of approximately 29 million souls, the Republic of Kenya (with its capital at Nairobi) is located in coastal Eastern Africa south of Ethiopia and north of Tanzania. Like Tanzania its official languages are Kiswahili and English. Nevertheless, there are many ethnic groups that also speak their mother tongues (Kikuyu, Luo, Kikamba, Luhia, etc.). There is a nice collection of small booklets entitled Beautiful People of Kenya describing various peoples. BLACFOUNDATION interest here includes all of ethnic groupings found here.
