Kenya’s population is largely African but there are minorities: Asians (Indians, Pakistanis and Goans) and Europeans.
Kiswahili aims to create national cohesion and understanding based on communication of values through a common language. As Kenyans intermarry, Kiswahili has taken a new shape as it borrows from local languages and English to create a new language, Sheng.
