Countries and territoriesKenya › Kenya

Kenya is a republic in eastern Africa that became independent from Britain in 1964. The coastal area of Kenya belonged to the Sultanate of Zanzibar in the 19th century until the Imperial British East African Company took over Mombasa and surroundings. The British changed the name to East Africa Protectorate in 1895 and to Kenya in 1920, after Mount Kenya. Read more
