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]

Confusing climate chart[edit]

In the section Kenya#Geography and climate, I can't understand the climate chart. Its title is "Average annual temperatures", but its two temperature columns are labeled " Max" and "Min". An average annual temperature is a single number, not a range.

I tried to figure out what these numbers represent by comparing the numbers in the row for Nairobi with the chart in Nairobi#Climate, but there seems to be no relation. 208.50.124.65 (talk) 01:21, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

Is it correct to refer to European and African pronunciation of Kenya? That seems oversimplified. Particularly as the word was actually adopted by the British colonial authorities when English was the official language - which would imply that if there is a European pronunciation that should be the correct one.Royalcourtier (talk) 07:25, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Madam Priscilla Ingasiani Abwao

Worthy of note as one of the women who went to Lancaster for the Kenyan Constitution. Though she led a very quiet life and was an imminent farmer in Kitale, she shied away from the limelight but her contribution to the development of women empowerment is worthy of note.

First Woman MP Was A Gender Rights Activist And Trail-Blazer Nov 19th, 2009

By NJERI RUGENE and EMEKA-MAYAKA GEKARA

Her journey to the all-male Kenyan Parliament, then known as Legco, started on February 19, 1961, at Ofafa estate in Nairobi. Here, the Kenya African Women League forwarded names of two African women Margaret Kenyatta, daughter of founding President Jomo Kenyatta, and Priscilla Ingasiani Abwao, a social worker and gender rights activist to the colonial governor for nomination to the Legislative Council.

The governor picked Mrs Abwao, making her the first African woman to sit in the Legco. Literature around Mrs Abwao projects her as remarkable woman; a principled advocate for women rights, freedom fighter and trail-blazer with an indomitable spirit to succeed...

Pronounce[edit]

Any source for the alleged pronounce? I mean, it's clearly not /ˈkɛnjə/ or /ˈkiːnjə/ but /ˈkɛɲə/ or /ˈkiːɲə/.
