Kenya Overview

Kenya is a presidential republic in East Africa with the sprawling metropolis of Nairobi as its capital. The country is characterized by strong contrasts, stretching from the hot, dry coastal strip on the Indian Ocean to glaciated volcanic massifs in the eastern third of the country. In between that extends from savannahs conquered highlands with moderate temperatures. This is the home of the “Big Five” (buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros), which – protected from poachers in numerous nature parks – is the main attraction for tourists from Europe and the USA. Tourism and export-oriented agriculture, which mainly produce tea, coffee, vegetables and cut flowers as export goods, generate the most income for the country. Despite an industry that is well developed by East African standards, a significant proportion of Kenyans make their living in the informal sector. Kenya is a multi-ethnic state. The coexistence of around 40 different peoples, the Bantu, Nilot and Kushite families belonged, made the emergence of a Kenyan national consciousness difficult. The predominant religion is Christianity, but it is divided into several different faith communities. More than one in ten Kenyans professes Sunni Islam. Under J. Kenyatta , Kenya gained independence from the former colonial power Great Britain in 1963 and declared itself a republic the following year. Corruption, favoritism and conflicts among the Kenyan peoples have so far prevented the establishment of democratic structures even among his successors.

The constitution guarantees freedom of religion. All religious communities are legally equal. The information on religious affiliation varies greatly.

According to this, 83% of the population are Christians: 48% of the population have various (post-) Reformation religious communities; This also includes 12% Anglican Christians (»Anglican Church of Kenya«, 32 dioceses, seat of the archbishop in Nairobi), 23% belong to the Catholic Church (four archdioceses with 20 suffragan dioceses, a military ordinariate and an apostolic vicariate). Orthodox Christians make up less than 2% of the population.

About 11%, especially Somal and Bantu peoples, profess Sunni Islam (predominantly the Shafiite school of law ). Around 2% of the population still adheres to indigenous beliefs. Bahais, Hindus, Jains and Sikhs are small religious minorities.
