Kenya has a culture born of a myriad sources and this proudly reflects her strength – the ability to integrate the best of many worlds into her own unique and endlessly beautiful culture – a culture appropriately matched by a country as diverse and beautiful as its people.
Recognising its value on the trade route along the east coast of Africa, the Portuguese took control of Mombasa towards the end of the 15th century and dominated this region until their expulsion in the 1700s. Two Arab dynasties followed and Arab rule lasted until the British government declared a protectorate over Kenya at eh end of the 18th century.The first murmurings of political protest were heard in the early 1920s and efforts to gain freedom from British rules saw the start of the Mau Mau movement in about 1947. The movement gained momentum and despite British government action, Kikuyu resistance spearheaded the Kenya independence movement and Jomo Kenyatta, who had been jailed as a Mau Mau leader in 1953, became president of an independent Kenya 10 years later. After his death in 1978, Kenyatta was succeeded by Daniel arap Moi who, following elections in 2002, stepped down and the presidency was assumed by Mwai Kibaki, the current president.
Interestingly enough, the Maasai tribe, which is synonymous with Kenya, represents only 1.5% of the country’s population. These fearless tribesmen in their bright red clothing are an intriguing and somewhat mystical part of Kenyan culture.
