* Elena of ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' fame, a native of the Highlands outside Nairobi, is one of the few African (let alone Kenyan) characters in fighting games. She has had two Kenyan-themed stages designed for her -- The first, appearing in ''Street Fighter 3: New Generation'', is two-tiered and consists of a suspension bridge between two cliffs above the savannah, which is then knocked out by a giant bird to send the characters tumbling down to the banks of a waterfall, complete with lounging elephant and giraffe. ''2nd Impact'' features a re-colouring of the stage - it is set at night with bonfires and the elephant is asleep. In ''Third Strike'', her stage is newly designed and straight out of ''Disney/TheLionKing'', featuring a ''huge'' hazy sunset on the savannah with heat-haze effect.

BarackObama's father is a Luo man from Kenya. This prompted a national holiday when he was elected (and a bitter joke by the losing candidate in the presidential election--the Luo Raila Odinga--that a Luo would be President of the United States before one could be President of Kenya). This also prompted [[ConspiracyTheorist nutcases]] in America to believe that Obama himself is from Kenya as well, which would thus make him, the theorists believe, ineligible for the office of the Presidency. (It wouldn't, because Obama's mother is a US citizen and thus he is automatically as well. Same way that John [=McCain=] and Ted Cruz weren't born in America [[=McCain=] was born on in the Panama Canal zone and Cruz in Calgary, Canada] but are still citizens eligible for office by virtue of claiming citizenship from their parents.)
