This meal is eaten both for lunch and supper (chakula cha jioni). In between they have 10'oclock tea (chai ya saa nne) and 4'oclock p.m. tea (chai ya saa kumi).

Nairobi is the largest city in Kenya having a cool climate that gets colder approaching Mount Kenya which has three permanently snow-capped peaks.

Although Kenya is the biggest and most advanced economy in east and central Africa, it is still a poor developing country. But almost half of Kenyans live in poverty.
