Regarding the Upcoming Kenya's Ethnic conference, previously elaborated in my previous thread,
http://kenyasomali.blogspot.com/2008/03/kenyas-national-ethnic-conference.html , I would ask my readers, many of who are Kenyan Somalis to "thoroughly" check the difference between these two maps showing population densities...The newest way of planning how to the National Cake...

They say, The majority rule the minority but surely this cannot be the case for a country like Kenya.

Previous regimes have been using "political" census to deny our people the right to national cake, on the pretext that Kenyan Somalis are 2% of 37 million people and that funds allocation for them in various projects, be it education, health and infrastructure was strangled.
The situation is now different and after the Kenya's "rigged" 2007 disputed election, some fellas came with the idea of "Kenya's Ethnic Conference" which was our best way to express the subjugation dealt on our people.

We have just amended the "cooked" census records and going by records at both the National Registeration Bureau at the Ministry of State, Office of the President and research undertaken by various agencies including IRIN and UNDP, The "correct" map will read something like herebelow.
Going from blog to blog, many Kenyans do not even mention somalis when talking about Kenyan tribes.Check some statements from one Japson kap kirwok, explaining Kenya's ethnic composition in relation to dividing The just concluded cabinet...

He say,
“.....Our source of statistics for Kenya’s ethnic composition is the March 2008 edition of the CIA’s World Fact Book. If we map ethnic composition against the distribution of full Cabinet positions, we get the following statistics. The Kikuyu, our most populous ethnic group, compromises 22 per cent of the population. Their share of positions in the Coalition Cabinet is 19 per cent. The Luhya, at 14 per cent of the population is the second most populous ethnic group. Their share in the current Cabinet is 19 per cent. The Luo come next at 13 per cent of the population; they occupy 12 per cent of the slots in the Cabinet. The Kalenjins represent 12 per cent of the population and their share of Cabinet positions is also 12 per cent, while the Kamba are 11 per cent of the population with a share of seven per cent of Cabinet positions. The Kisii represent six per cent of the population and have six per cent of the Cabinet positions, while the Meru are six per cent of the population with a two per cent share of the Cabinet. The rest of the other 35 African ethnic communities comprise 15 per cent of the total population. Their share of the Cabinet is a surprising 21 per cent. Finally, the non-African "tribes" — Europeans, Asians and Arabs — comprise one per cent of the Kenyan population with a share of the Cabinet of two per cent. The picture changes only slightly when we include the Assistant ministers. We may quibble about a percentage higher here and a percentage lower there, but a it is reasonably balanced. ....”
How can we change these notion, that Kenya Somalis are not 2% and that someone may have removed 1 infront of 2 to mean 12% of 37 million Kenyans?
