kenya history
Kenya History
  • British colonial control of Kenya dates from the Berlin Conference of 1885, when the European powers partitioned East Africa.
  • However, Kenya did not become an official colony of Great Britain until 1920.
  • Blacks were denied a role in politics until 1944, when a few were allowed to run and hold office.
kenya history1
Kenya History
  • 1950-Violent uprising began
    • Lasted 7 years
  • The Mau MauUprisingwas a military conflict in Kenya between 1952 and 1960. It involved a small group of Kenyans and the British colonialists.
  • The movement was violently suppressed and was not widely supported.
  • Some argue the conflict set the stage for Kenyan sovereignty in1963. Historians claim that the rebellion delayed Kenya's independence, since the British would only hand over control to the Kenyan’s once the country was stable.
  • In the end, 1000s of Africans were killed, compared to about 100 Europeans.
    • From this point forward, black participation increased until it became independent in 1963.
  • Kenya became independent on December 12, 1963 and became a republic.

Kenya
  • Until the unrest of 2007, Kenya had maintained remarkable stability despite changes in its political system and crises in neighboring countries.
  • In December 2002, Kenyans held democratic and open elections, most of which were judged free and fair by international observers. The 2002 elections marked an important turning point in Kenya's democratic evolution in that power was transferred peacefully from the Kenya African Union (KANU), which had ruled the country since independence to the National Rainbow Coalition (Narc), a coalition of political parties.

kenya education1
Kenya Education
  • Various factors affect access to education in Kenya.
    • Mainly gender
      • Most girls are not formerly educated, therefore Kenya has a lower literacy rate.
      • Traditional views state that girls should get married rather than have an education.
        • However, in recent years, the education system is beginning to encourage more girls to get their education. The government is hoping to increase their literacy rate and standard of living.
