Swahili in Kenya

The Internet

An internet cafe

Internet cafes are easy to find in Nairobi city and the major towns of Kenya but are rarely available in the countryside. Most Internet cafes are simply rooms with computer workstations. One can, however, find the occasional cybercafe that sells drinks and snacks. A growing trend in some of the Kenyan and South African fast food franchises is to feature a small room adjoining the restaurant with a few computer workstations that can be rented to customers. Government and business offices tend to have Internet access. Whether or not a residence has Internet access depends upon the family income and location.
