Kenya Voted fourth Best English Speaking Country in Africa

englishKenya has been named as fourth best English Speaking African Country Africa in a study conducted by World Linguistic Agency.

The study names Uganda as the best with  Zambia as second.

According to reports, the study revelations have risen amid video from a Miss Rwanda contestant that was shown struggling with English in a country that made a move from Francophone to Anglophone.

The study also sees Nigerians being credited for taking the spot for constructing good sentences that are grammatically flawless.

English and Swahili are the Kenya’s two official languages.

The English language was introduced to Kenya along with Great Britain’s colonisation of Kenya in 1895, when the East Africa Protectorate was set up before becoming a colony in 1920. Swahili had been established as a trade language in most parts of the Swahili Coast at the time of colonization, and it was also used in education.

The British reduced the influence of Swahili and made English the medium of instruction in Kenyan schools. English remained in official use after Kenya’s independence on 12 December 1963, and today it is the official language of Kenya, with Swahili recognised as its national language.

The full list is as follows

1. Uganda
2. South Africa
3. Nigeria
4. Kenya
5. Zambia
6. Botswana
7. Zimbabwe
8. Malawi
9. Ghana
10. Rwanda
11. Sudan
