Kenya’s Multicultural Mosaic: A Study of Cultural Exchange

Multiculturalism in Kenya


Kenya is home to over 40 tribal groups (this number becomes much larger if counting the various ‘subgroups’). They breakdown into three distinct linguist groups: Bantu speakers (who include Kikuyu, Meru, Embu, Akamba and Luhya), Nilotic – speakers (the Maasai, Turkana, Samburu, Pokot, Luo and Kalenjin) and the minority Cushitic-speakers (el Molo, Somali, Rendille and Galla).

On the Coast, Swahili is the name given to the local people who, although they have various tribal ancestries, have intermarried with Arab settlers over the centuries, giving rise to the Kiswahili language and a predominantly Arabic Culture.

Bordered by five neighborhoods, Kenya has also been subject to an influx of refugees from time to time, namely from Uganda, Somalia, Sudan and Burundi.
