Edit request 12 Feb: Energy[edit]

Hi, I have drafted a paragraph for inclusion in the Energy secton of this article...

Inaccurate projections from an Irish oil firm, Tullow Oil, caused chaos for the Kenyan government in 2012.[1] Tullow’s claim that the country had “more oil than its neighbour Uganda” prompted Kenya to change its entire energy policy and also to withdraw from a Uganda-based oil refinery project.[1]

Bloated Kenya article.[edit]

I feel that the breaking up of elections into their own sections bloats the wiki. Should every election have it's own subsection? and couldn't it be better if there was a wikipedia article specially for "contested Kenyan elections" that would explain further with just a link to it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.49.88.110 (talk) 17:33, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

The Coat of Arms is wrong[edit]

Kenya's coat of arms has lions, not dragons as shown here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.203.222.34 (talk) 08:45, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

George Bush[edit]

Why is there a George Bush II image on a page about Kenya?
People visiting here to see images of Kenya are confronted by the features of a previous president of a remote country.
His image also resides on pages for Bahrain, Dominican Republic, Gabon, Ghana, Latvia, Mali, Nigeria and Romania.
George Bush Jnr admirers, please place his image on his page only. B. Fairbairn (talk) 13:24, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Largest cities and towns[edit]

I went over the list of cities and towns in Kenya, trying to locate them on the map. It appears that starting with Kehancha, in a list that includes a number of cities, they do not appear on any map, no matter how recent or high-quality. This seems fishy to say the least, and without deep knowledge on the subject, I assume either of two things: the population figures provided in the article are incorrect; or these are actually agglomerations of villages that officially make up a single municipality (or not), but in practice are neither a city nor a town. In either case, the list should be revisited. Does anyone have more information about this? —Ynhockey (Talk) 14:05, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
