Kenya - Religions



Kenya Religions 1529
Photo by: Ruggiero.S

An estimated 66% of the population are Christians with about 28% belonging to the Roman Catholic church and 38% belonging to Protestant churches. About 10% to 20% are Muslim, with many living in the Northeast Province, the Coast Province, and the northern region of the Eastern Province. About 1% is Hindu and the remainder practice traditional religions or local branches of Christianity. As in other African states with complex religious histories and some renewal of cultural self-consciousness, it is likely that a majority of ethnic Kenyans also hold some traditional African beliefs.

I thought this article was very helpfull. I am a student in the 7th grade, and I am doing a project on African countrys. I decided to pick Kenya. Looking up information about a country isnt all that easy sometimes. I think its kinda hard to find things about this country because its not really, or well known. I think you guys should have people put commericals about your country because every country should be well known, and all the citys, or regions in the African country should be well known.

Thank you very much for the use of this article. I was doing a research paper for my A.P. World history class on Kenya. We not only had to research our countries politics and origin but their culture as well! This site saved me many an hour in front of a computer screen trying to separate the unimportant content form what I needed to know.
