"And since the Swahili language is the dominant language in Kenya and other East African nations {at least that's what I've read}, it's also interesting to note that Swahilis make up only 0.60% of Kenyan people. "

Your wikipedia reference is the first time that I've ever seen reference to a Swahili race. I've always understood that it is the lingua franca of the African east coast.
