Transcript of KENYA

Modern day Kenya
Kenya gained independence from the british in 1963, and is suffering from high unemployment, crime, and poverty. There are many political issues. Their current president, Uhuru Kenyatta, has promised that there will be no more corruption. However, recently $1 billion had been lost to graft.
How colonization affected Kenya
The British colonized Kenya in 1895, and gained independence in 1963. There were both positive and negative affects on Kenya. This colonization brought education and health institutes, as well as modern government. But, harsh policies were created and they created hostilities.
Challenges of Today
Colonial Kenya
The colonization of Kenya is very big part because it has changed their country. The story of this is that Kenya were farmers that were colonized by Portugal then Arabs took it back, in 1887 Britain colonized it for the need of materials. I don't know for sure because nobody really knows but Britain did kick them off their farms. They did not do this in a calm way they also forced them to have tags of identification so the British knew who they were.
Pre-Colonial Kenya
Social Structure: Kenya had many groups of muslim families that lead their country
The Native Response Of The Colonization Of Kenya
There wasn't that much about the response but 50 years later after colonization of Kenya there were groups forming and then the groups got bigger and bigger and they started to conquer the British
Geography: sand, rock, and soil covered most of the land. Parts of the land were suitable with farming, and contained palms and fruit trees. There was a very hot climate, and lots of wild animals lived here.
Religion: Arab immigrants brought the religion of islam to Kenya, so many of their people became muslim. There were many mosques and temples built for their religion.
Achievements: pre-colonial Kenya had many achievements, one being architecture. This architecture was influenced by foreign trade. One example of this architecture was Husuni Kubwa, which contained 100 rooms.
Politics: Kenya was ruled by rulers from the same family. These people were muslims, and had traveled from Persia and Arabia. This government included officials who oversaw trade, taxed shipments and maintained the port, docks, and exchange centers.
Economics: Farming was difficult because of the red soil and sand. These were not suitable for crops. There were many fruits grown on the island, like coconuts, bananas, oranges, and lemons, They also grew millet, rice, and sorghum.

In Kenya today, there are many struggles. One is high unemployment, crime, and poverty. Also, there are many droughts that are putting people at risk. Also, Kenya's army is fighting with Islamist s because of accusation is kidnapping and killing tourists and aid workers. Not only has the Kenyan army been there, but they've paid us visits too.
