Kenya’s towns are a melting pot of all the diverse cultures, where many people speak several languages and eat a variety of foods originating from the various groups. Comprising about 25% of the country’s total population, these communities live harmoniously bonded, in part by the national languages, English and Kiswahili.

Urbanization is gradually transforming the Kenyan society. As Kenyans from all areas of the country move into large cities such as Nairobi, they bring with them some facets of their Kenya2native cultures and ethnic languages. Most Kenyans have left traditional customs and dress behind to adopt a more “western” lifestyle.

Due to the influence of Christian missionaries in the country in the 19th century, most Kenyans are Christians. The Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches are the most established within the country.
