India: Indians in Kenya

Sepia Mutiny on Indians in Kenya, culture, identities and the economy. “The aloofness question comes down to whether or not Indians are perceived to have a stake in the future of the country and are not a foreign population siphoning wealth and keeping it for themselves.”

  • I think this is a hot topic. I am half Indian and half black, so I think I can speak a little for both sides. Indians are important in Kenya, mainly because many of them are Kenyans. I live in America and I understand, the color of you skin or you background does not spell out whether or not you deserve to live in a certain place. What the British did, was a long time ago. Generations of Indians have been born in Kenya. They are Kenyan. Somehow there has to be some unity between the Indians and blacks. Maybe we can start it right here.

    I strongly believe that Africa should only be to Africans, not for others who r benefiting from us, but not even willing to give back to the African Community; therefore,there has to be a policy designed which helps real Africans to benefit from thier mother land primarily. The heart of the matter is how do u do it. Here is the Answer:- The number of educated Africans who really care about thier home land is rising significantly; we have promised to our parents and people that we will bring Africa back to them.
