KENYA INDEPENDENCE

#3:. Also related to technology, Kenya was the first developing country to have an open government portal, the 22nd country globally. In July 2011, Kenya launched the Kenya Open Data Initiative, becoming the first sub-Saharan country to do so and second African country after Morocco, later followed by Tunisia and Ghana.

This made key government data freely available to the public through a single online portal.

#4:. Kenya was the first country to destroy stockpiled ivory: In 1989, former President Daniel arap Moi torched a 12 tonne pyre of ivory tusks.

Since then a number of countries have followed suit by destroying stocks including France, the USA, Belgium, Zambia, Gabon, the Philippines, Hong Kong and China who destroyed 6 tonnes in Guangzhou in 2014.
