“No, I’m serious. What makes us Kenyan? We don’t have a national food. Everything either belongs to a tribe or another culture, but nothing is national; nothing is officially Kenyan.”
I thought about it, and she was indeed right. She continued:
“Same thing goes for clothing and language. We don’t have a national landmark, per se: most Kenyans wouldn’t recognize Mt. Kenya and not many outside Nairobi would know what KICC is. And maybe that’s why we don’t feel united with each other unless we’re looking at our flag or singing our national anthem. We’re related by Geography.”
I found this to be a severely sad thought, but definitely one worth pondering. So, I pass the question on to you, dear readers. What would you says makes us Kenyan?
