People with Kenyan ethnic roots are also found in the islands near Kenya, including Madagascar, Seychelles, Comoros, and Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean. Major migrations over the last few decades due to economic and political instability have resulted in large Kenyan populations in the U.K., U.S., and Australia.
