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]

Under Demographics Ethnic Groups, Somalis are classified as foreign rooted. This is incorrect, they should be included with the rest of the indigenous tribes or left out completely. Let us not mislead people. Abdicarumba (talk) 17:06, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 21:09, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Obozo[edit]

Why isn't Obozo mentioned? He was born in Kenya — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.56.7.78 (talk) 02:08, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Pronunciation Reverted[edit]

In one of his introductions to The Flame Trees of Thika, Alistair Cooke mentioned working as a journalist in Kenya when it became a republic in 1964. There was a big sign that, by order of President Kenyatta, the country was now to be called "Kennya" not "Keenya." Cooke then noted that, with the death of Kenyatta, people had started calling the country "Keenya" again.

I found this to be true last year when I went to new graduate student orientation at the School of Information Studies, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee -- where I met a new graduate student from Africa who said he came from "Keenya," not "Kennya."

An official check on this might be done so that the pronunciation indicated at the head of the article can be updated.

Wikipedia generally takes a non-prescriptive stance on such things. Quickly checking some major dictionaries, I see that some list the long-e pronunciation and some don't. Also, there have been some comments in the past on the two pronunciations currently given (see Talk:Kenya/Archive_1), but the discussion doesn't seem to have gone much of anywhere. Can you find any reliable sources (other than dictionaries)? RivertorchFIREWATER 03:24, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
