Are Kenyan birth certificates in english?

In Kenya, the official languages are Swahili and English, so it comes with no surprise that this is a popular question. These two languages serve as the two official working languages. Including second-language speakers, there are more speakers of Swahili than English in Kenya.

Ethnologue reveals that there are a total of 68 languages spoken in Kenya. This variety is a reflection of the country’s diverse population that includes most major ethnoracial and linguistic groups found in Africa.

As to the question of what language the Kenyan birth certificate is written in, the answer is english, if that was what you you thought. So yes, english it is!

Remember when former US president Barack Obama’s birth certificate was released? It was in english.
