Mention Kenya Internationally and One or Two things are immediately brought up.
One, world dominant long-distance runners, and Two the great Wild beast Migration. Yes, Kenya is proud to be associated with these facts, but Kenya is one of the most varied lands on the planet both in terms of its geography and its ethnic population. The Republic of Kenya sits on the equator where it’s bordered by the Indian Ocean, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Somalia. In 2019, Kenya has an estimated population of 52.57 million, which ranks 27th in the world.
With this Diversity, the Muriuki couple found a need to celebrate the Happy Spirit of the Kenyan People, and Incorporate the African Heritage into the Carnival outfits.
