National Flag

By: Helena

I used to live in Kenya with my parents. The capital of Kenya is Nairobi. Nairobi is also the largest city. In Kenya there is also Savanna. The president is Mwai Kibaki. Because of the altitude Nairobi gets quite cold at night and in the early morning, but being on the equator, when the sun comes out it warms up quickly. The two official languages are Swahili and English.

Here are a few words of Swahili:

jambo = hello
asante = thank you
asante sana = thank you very much.
kwaheri = goodbye (to one person)
kwaherini = goodbye (to more than one person)
rafiki = friend
karibu = welcome

The National Anthem

Ee Mungu nguvu yetu
O God of all Creation

Ilete baraka kwetu
Bless this our land and nation

Haki iwe Ngao na mlinzi
Justice be our shield and defender

Natukai na udugu
May we dwell in unity

Amani na Uhuru
Peace and liberty

Raha tupate na ustawi
Plenty be found within our borders

Amkeni Ndugu zetu
Let all with one arise

Tufanye sote bidii
With hearts both strong and true

Nasi tujitoe kwa nguvu
Service be our earnest endeavor

Nchi yetu ya Kenya
And our Homeland of Kenya

A heritage of splendor

Tuwe tayari kuilinda
Firm may we stand to defend

Natujenge taifa letu
Let all with one accord

Ee Ndio, wajibu wetu
In common bond united

Kenya istahili heshima
Build this our nation together

Tungane mikono
And the Glory of Kenya

Pamoja kazini
The fruit of our labor

Kila siku tuwe na shukrani
Fill every heart with thanksgiving
