WARM-UP
Read: “I would say colonialism is a wonderful
thing. It spread civilization to Africa. Before it
they had no written language, no wheel as we
know it, no schools, no hospitals, not even
normal clothing.” Ian Smith, Last White Prime Minister of
Rhodesia 1965-1979
Reflect & Write: In one sentence, journal - Why
might he be right?
PREVIEW ACTIVITY
Kenya: National Identity
and Unity
OVERVIEW
 Location: Kenya is located in the
tropical region of Africa
 Climate: Arid / Semi-arid savanna
climate due to wind patterns that
bring little rain from the Indian or
Atlantic Oceans (Similar to Texas)
 Vegetation: Grassland & Scrub
Brush manage to support large
populations of wildlife
PREVIEW ACTIVITY
Kenya: National Identity and
Unity
HISTORY
 The Historical boundaries of Africa prior
to European colonization were based on
cultural and linguistic divisions as large
groups of people formed tribes and
controlled certain regions.
 In 1884 this changed when the European
powers met in Germany to divide up
Africa into areas controlled by each
European power.
 Britain was given the right to control the
area of Kenya
PREVIEW ACTIVITY
Kenya: National Identity and Unity
HISTORY
 The Local African Tribes were forced to give-up their lands with
no compensation.
 English settlers came and set-up a regional government,
introduced the English language and brought Christianity to
the region. In effect, they brought British Law and rule to the
territory with little input from the native tribes.
 The Rift Valley and the surrounding Highlands became the
enclave of white immigrants engaged in large-scale coffee
farming dependent on mostly Kikuyu labor. This area's fertile
land has always made it the site of migration and conflict.
There were no significant mineral resources—none of the gold
or diamonds that attracted so many to South Africa
PREVIEW ACTIVITY
Kenya: National Identity and Unity
HISTORY
 As a reaction to their exclusion from political
representation, the Kikuyu people, the most subject
to pressure by the settlers, founded in 1921 Kenya's
first African political protest movement, leading to
the Kenyan African Union as a native political party
 In response to the rising pressures the British
Colonial Office broadened the membership of the
Legislative Council and increased its role. By 1952 a
multiracial pattern of quotas allowed for 14
European, 1 Arab, and 6 Asian elected members,
together with an additional 6 African and 1 Arab
member chosen by the governor. The council of
ministers became the principal instrument of
government in 1954.
PREVIEW ACTIVITY
Kenya: National Identity and Unity
HISTORY
 A key watershed came from 1952 to 1956, during the Mau Mau Uprising, an
armed local movement directed principally against the colonial government
and the European settlers. It was the largest and most successful such
movement in British Africa. The protest was supported almost exclusively by
the Kikuyu, despite issues of land rights and anti-European, anti-Western
appeals designed to attract other groups.
 This movement lead to eventual independence in 1963 for Kenya.
 The country continues to face many obstacles including having over 42 different
ethnic groups that conflict over how to divide power and resources.
