Kenya is a country in east Africa. It is one of the most politically stable countries in Africa with a moderate economy, though its uneven distribution of wealth means that there are still many poor people. Kenya currently has an extensive plan for future growth. The people of Kenya are divided into many different cultural groups. Most groups speak different languages, though English and Swahili are the official languages and are widely spoken across the country. Most of the people practice Christianity with small groups of Muslims and indigenous believers.
