Cultural Organizations in Kenya
Waves of migration over the centuries from the north and south have led to Cultural Organizations in Kenya becoming one of the most diverse African countries culturally and linguistically.
The country has at least 40 different ethnic African groups (including the Kikuyu, Luhya, Kalenjin tribes, Luo, Kamba, Somali, Kisii, Meru & Embu, Mijikenda, Turkana and Maasai) who speak a variety of mother tongues.
