      Fossils found in East Africa suggest that protohumans roamed the area more than 20 million years ago. Recent finds near Kenya's Lake Turkana indicate that hominids lived in the area 2.6 million years ago.
      Cushitic-speaking people from what is now Sudan and Ethiopia moved into the area that is now Kenya beginning around 2000 BC. Arab traders began frequenting the Kenya coast around the first century AD. Kenya's proximity to the Arabian Peninsula invited colonization, and Arab and Persian settlements sprouted along the coast by the eighth century. During the first millennium AD, Nilotic and Bantu peoples moved into the region, and the latter now comprise two thirds of Kenya's population. The Swahili language, a Bantu language with significant Arabic vocabulary, developed as a trade language for the region.
      Arab dominance on the coast was interrupted for about 150 years following the arrival of the Portuguese in 1498. British exploration of East Africa in the mid-1800s eventually led to the establishment of Britain's East African Protectorate in 1895. The Protectorate promoted settlement of the fertile central highlands by Europeans, dispossessing the Kikuyu and others of their land. Some fertile and well watered parts of the Rift Valley inhabited by the Maasai and the western highlands inhabited by the Kalenjin were also handed over to European settlers. For other Kenyan communities, the British presence was slight, especially in the arid northern half of the country. The settlers were allowed a voice in government even before Kenya was officially made a British colony in 1920, but Africans were prohibited from direct political participation until 1944 when a few appointed (but not elected) African representatives were permitted to sit in the legislature.

      Cushitic language -speaking people from northern Africa moved into the area that is now Kenya beginning around 2000 B.C.E. Arab traders began frequenting the Kenya coast around the 1st century C.E. (Common Era). Kenya's proximity to the Arabian Peninsula invited trade and later colonization. Between the first and the fifth centuries C.E., Greek merchants from Egypt had some stake in the trade. About 500 C.E. traders from the Persian Gulf, southern India and Indonesia made contact with East Africa. Trade led to establishment of commercial posts. Eventually, these commercial posts became Arab and Persian city-states along the coast. By the 8th century these city-states tended to have rulers that had accepted Islam.

    Kenya History in East Africa and the World at Large
    Looking for information about Kenya history, Kenya Culture and Kenya People? Do you that the cradle of mankind is in Kenya. Dr Leaky and his archaeological evidences proved that man existed in Kenya ten million years ago. Therefore, on this page we shall guide you about every inch of history in Kenya.
    The Kenya history in Africa is rather long and complicated, involving a list of different cultures and influences, and as such, this article aims to give readers an adequate summary of how Kenya got to where it is today. Besides enjoying the Kenya safaris and the Kenya beaches, visitors to this East African country can also indulge in the culture of Kenya, which is brought to life by groups like the Swahili, Kikuyu, Masai, and Luo peoples, among others. Some anthropologists go so far as dubbing Kenya "the cradle of humanity", so it is a part of the world that surely figures prominently in overall human development. Kenyan history has surely seen its fair share of strife, some of which continues to this day, though all in all, it has become a relatively safe African country where tourism is among the top industries. Hopefully, the most recent clashes will blow over, allowing Kenya to return to the travel radars of those who might currently be looking elsewhere. Around the year 2000 BC, nomadic Cushitic tribes from northern Africa began moving into present-day Kenya, though fossils show that hominids, such as Homo Habilis and Homo Erectus, had previously lived here going back millions of years. After the Cushitic tribes came, other groups which started flowing in with more regularity between 1000-500 BC. Kenya's Bantu-speaking groups, such as the Kikuyu and Meru, came mainly from West Africa, with the Nile River Valley being the previous stomping grounds of Nilotic speakers like the Luo, Samburu, and Maasai. The Maasai remain a major fixture in the culture of Kenya, and their tall stature and red robes make them quite distinguishable.

    * Kenya was first populated by a number of small dispersed tribal groups, the main groups were the Kikuyu, Kamba, Luo and Masai. These tribes shared the same area of land although they all had different origins.
    * It wasn't until the 19th century that outsiders entered the interior of the country and as a result Kenya escaped the worst of the Arab slavers who concentrated more further to the south.
    * The coast however helped to form an important part of a chain of Omani Arab trading posts. These strings of trading posts dealt mainly in ivory and slaves and were under the control of the Sultan of Zanzibar.
    * The overshadowing of the Sultan's powers started in the late 19th century when both British and German personnel obtained trading concessions along the coast.
    * Britain was allotted what is now Uganda and Kenya; Germany was allotted what is now mainland Tanzania.
    * In 1893 Uganda became a British protectorate closely followed by Kenya - 1895. The British were just interested in controlling the rich resources of Uganda and to facilitate this they built a railway between Mombasa and Kampala using labourers from India, many of whom remained and have become todays merchant class.
    * At the turn of the century British attention was drawn away from Uganda and settled upon Kenya. White farmers went in and set up plantations producing export crops. During this process many Africans lost their land; they were then forced onto inferior land or onto the labour market as a result of hut taxes imposed by the colonial administration.

    Kenya and the Origins of Mankind
    Kenya has been called the cradle of mankind: the place where the first humans appeared. Fossils found in the Great Rift Valley, around Lake Turkana (in the north of Kenya) suggest that hominids (the family of man apes and humans) walked around there several millions of years ago. But there are little remains and a new find could change the theories quickly. A key figure in researching Kenyas prehistoric past was the British-Kenyan anthropologist Louis Leakey. Many remains are displayed in the famous Kenya National Museum in Nairobi, where they have met with fierce opposition from Kenyan Christians, who find them to be insulting to their religion.
    Tribes Moving In
    The current tribes in Kenya like elsewhere in East Africa can be divided into three (language) groups: the Bantus, Nilotes and Cushites. The Cushitic-speaking peoples moved into what is now Kenya from north African territory around 2000 BC. They were hunterer-gatherers, but also livestock herders and farmers. A new phase in Kenya history was born. Today they form only a small part of the population: for example the Somali, Boni, Rendille and Wata tribes are Cushitic.

    History in Kenya
    Edit This Trevor Mikelas The history of Kenya as a political entity began with the region's inclusion in the British sphere of influence in the late nineteenth century and the subsequent establishment of a British protectorate and colony there. The British brought together the country's diverse elements under a unified administration and bestowed on it the name Kenya after the 5,200-meter peak in the central highlands that the Kikuyu called kere nyaga, the "mountain of whiteness." Improvement in the lot of the average African was limited until after World War II when political movements, like that among the Kikuyu led by Jomo Kenyatta, demanded a role for the black majority in Kenya's government. The determination of the European community to retain exclusive control in a "White Man's Country" and the continued denial of African rights set off a violent reaction during the Mau Mau emergency in the 1950s. The Kikuyu-led insurrection was suppressed, and the lengthy imprisonment of Kenyatta and other African leaders suspected of complicity in it caused a hiatus in organized African political activity until 1960, when the campaign for majority rule within the framework of the colonial regime succeeded in submerging ethnic differences among Africans and in winning the recognition of British authorities. In 1961 the British government set Kenya on a course that led to majority rule and, at the end of 1963, to full independence within the Commonwealth of Nations. The next year Kenya became a republic under a unitary form of government headed by Kenyatta as its first president, and the principal political parties voluntarily merged under his leadership in the Kenya African National Union (KANU). Radical dissidents and ethnic interest groups fearful of Kikuyu domination followed Oginga Odinga out of KANU during an interlude in the late 1960s, but the rival political movement that they formed was banned in 1969, and Kenya reverted in practice to being a one-party state.

    Kenya History
    Kenya was first explored by portuguese. Vasco da Gama visited mombasa along the indian ocean in 1498. Vasco da Gama visit was successful when he visited India and made it easier for the Portuguese to trade with the far east by sea. They gained control over much of the trade routes between Europe and Asia .The traditional land routes to India was closed by Ottoman Turks. The Portuguese presence in East Africa officially began after 1505, when flagships under the command of Don Francisco de Almeida conquered Kilwa, an island located in what is now southern Tanzania .
    The Portuguese in East Africa served the purpose of control trade within the Indian Ocean and secure the sea routes linking Europe to Asia . The construction of Fort Jesus in Mombasa in 1593 was meant to solidify Portuguese hegemony in the region, but their influence was clipped by the English , Dutch and Omani Arab who came to mombasa in the 17th century. The Omani Arabs posed the most direct challenge to Portuguese influence in East Africa and besieged Portuguese fortresses, openly attacked naval vessels and expelled the remaining Portuguese from the Kenyan and Tanzanian coasts by 1730. By this time the Portuguese Empire had lost interest on the trade sea route because of the decreasing profit of that business.

    Kenya - History
    Kenya is a country on the east coast of Africa. It extends from the Indian Ocean deep into the interior of Africa. The equator runs through the centre of Kenya.
    A spectacular variety of fascinating wild animals live in Kenya. This wildlifewhich includes elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinoceroses, and zebrasattracts thousands of tourists to Kenya each year.
    To protect the country's wildlife, the government has set up several national parks and game reserves, which are among the finest in Africa. Hunting is illegal. But poachers continue to kill such animals as elephants for their tusks and rhinoceroses for their horns.
    Founding president and liberation struggle icon Jomo KENYATTA led Kenya from independence until his death in 1978, when current President Daniel Toroitich arap MOI took power in a constitutional succession.
    The country was a de facto one-party state from 1969 until 1982 when the ruling Kenya African National Union (KANU) made itself the sole legal party in Kenya. MOI acceded to internal and external pressure for political liberalization in late 1991.
    The ethnically fractured opposition failed to dislodge KANU from power in elections in 1992 and 1997, which were marred by violence and fraud, but are viewed as having generally reflected the will of the Kenyan people.
