Kenya's Asian community has been officially recognised as the nation's 44th tribe.
Last week's government announcement followed numerous petitions from Kenyan Asians, but will it make any difference to their lives?
Riaz Gilani is a 39-year-old butcher who says his family has been in Kenya for a century:
Quote Message: Gone are the days when we had integration at an early age. My government school was fairly mixed but now we are seeing more of a segregated system... This is now causing problems, and people increasingly ask me if I'm Kenyan!"
Pritpal Chana, a 20-year-old student from Nairobi, sees things differently:
Quote Message: I've never felt any sort of disconnect from being Kenyan, so being recognised as tribe doesn't make much of a difference to me. I've never had any kind of segregation just because I'm a Kenyan Indian."
