I can't say whether it's a hoax or not.
It's just unusual, the sex, the mention of a republic ... and actually the condition of this document too ... my birth certificates, 1966 vintage,
well looked after too ... are both in a considerably worse condition than this document. Mine is on much thinner paper & has red ink for "Christian
Names""Sex""Date of Birth" etc with all the variables typed in black ink.
And like I say my certificates have only been dragged out for purposes of getting my passport, driving licence etc ... and they're really, really
Hoax ? Dunno. Send someone to Kenya to find out.
Better still someone please email the Colonial Office in London (which was absorbed into the British Foreign Office in 1968) ... find out what
arrangements were made for British Kenyan birth certificates, who had responsibility for them pre and post independence, what nationality people could
take at independence etc etc. They must have some kind of record.
