    NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 31 – The population of Kenya has hit 38.6 million according to the much awaited results of the Population and Housing Census conducted in August last year.

    This compares with about 30 million Kenyans in 1999, when the last census was carried out.

    Planning Minister Wycliffe Oparanya has released the ethnic tally that places Kikuyu as the most populous tribe.

    1. Kikuyu 6,622,576
    2. Luhya 5,338,666
    3. Kalenjin 4,967,328
    4. Luo 4,044,440
    5. Kamba 3,893,157
    6. Kenyan Somali (nullified awaiting recount) 2,385,572
    7. Kisii 2,205,669
    8. Mijikenda 1,960,574
    9. Meru 1,658,108
    10. Turkana (also to be recounted) 988,592
    11. Maasai 841,622
    12. Teso 338,833

    Mr Oparanya said the least populous tribes are:

    Embu 324,092
    Taita 273,519
    Kuria 560,401
    Samburu 237,179
    Tharaka 175,905
    Mbeere 168,155
    Borana 161,399
    Suba 139,271
    Swahili 110,614
    Gabra 89,519
    Orma 66,275
    Rendille 60,437

    In terms of religion the Minister gave a breakdown as: "The Catholics 9,010,684 Protestants; 18,307,466, Other Christians that do not fall under the above 4,559,584.

    Muslims are 4,304,798, the Hindu 53,393, traditionalists 635,352. Other religions not falling under those are 557,450 and there are people who do not belong to any religion but believe in God they were 922,128.

    Those who said they do not know where they belong were 61,233."

    Smatta,
    Thanks for posting this. Heard it on the BBC earlier.
    Sasa, hapo nilipobold, how come there are Kenyans practicing Hinduism without the 'tribe' traditionally known to practice Hinduism being included in the census? In other words, what population of Kenya is of Asian origin? And Arabic?

    As for Pokola, knowing the tribal make-up of a country does not necessarily indicate fragmentation (though it might exist)

    Its not a tribal thing, lets look beyond that... Ethnic numeration is an important element in any multicultural society. Cultural preservation and revitalization need not be a an element of ethnic cleansing. In fact, failure to respect other people's culture usually is. How can we justify affirmative action for the marginalized tribes so that they do not become annihilated by the the dominant tribes. How can we ensure that these tribes, with their rich cultural heritage do not die?

    I know Kenyans tribal differences have been used by politicians to separate us, that should not be a reason for us to overlook our tribes. Alot of people will politicize this but I think we are past that tribalism era, we buried it with the old constitution.

    I don't see the reason for hiding such info as tribes pop. religion etc... because there is nothing wrong with it. I think it will enhance better planning to ensure that no groups are left underdeveloped as it has been under the previous laws which did not have counties and such..

    The masai community alone is larger than Asian + Arabic combined... I think you can make a good guess from that.

    Injinia my brother, there are 42 tribes in Kenya, most are not included in this summary. Kenyan Indians are many, I remember voting with some in the referendum, some Kenyan tribes are also not included, you'll have to get the final list to know the exact numbers.

    There is no significant cultural differences in African tribes which would amounts counting them on the basis of there tribe. Surely doing that is tantamount to institutionalizing tribalism.the british colonialists we good at that.

    And how much has the size of Kenya expanded? At what rate is your arable land shrinking? Your common agenda with the so called partner state is to offload your desperate population to the land of brave, the land of plenty, milk and honey in the name of Tanzania (URT). Tafadhali tuheshimiane, kaeni kwenu..and observe uzazi wa mpango and get technology to reclaim your desert. That's why you keep dreaming of Tanzania, day and night, that's why you are always on Jamii Forums! Mind you Kenya ina viwanda vingi kuliko Australia, but they aren't foot loose as you 'people'.

    No you don't, you only pretend to! If you did, you wouldn't be doing what you are doing! It's a risky business being near Kenya, but at least you are a buffer zone for us against Somalia! Kenyans now wander in TZ streets like nobody's business, it's like they've found a heaven, now one wonders what the faki is wrong with their country, desperate look, hungry and afya mgogoro! Above all, illegal aliens! For how long will we have shoulder Kenyan problems! Kenya can't be the industrial hub of the region, or is it??? need i say more woman! And those fagots who think i rant against this madness because i am insecure, am far from that!!!! Am just concerned for unsuspecting Tanzanians who get screwed up very day and night by their leaders and fakini forenas! Something has to be done!!!!!!

    It's not wandering really, you guys already know that we don't have much resources, so we have to share with others what they have, and Kenyans do go wherever they will find money, not necessarily Tanzania.

    Something needs to be done, but WHAT CAN YOU DO? you cant even remove CCM from power since independence, now you are talking about chasing foreigners.. You've got your priorities mixed up, you have a lethargic population, thats a fact, deal with that first and the rest will follow. SMH
