Thanks for your report. It's worth looking into, but it won't be fixed
for Ubuntu 18.04.

However, as regards *language* there are no translations available for
neither the Kenyan flavor of English nor Swahili, so the most reasonable
choice is probably English (UK) which is selectable by default.

As regards *formats*, i.e. the setting for date and number formats,
currency etc., you can generate the sw_KE locale with this command:

sudo locale-gen sw_KE

That will make Kenya selectable under Formats at next login.

** Project changed: ubuntu-translations => localechooser (Ubuntu)

Title:
  ubuntu installations in Kenya are problematic because default language
  is little known Oromo, not English or Swahili

Status in localechooser package in Ubuntu:
  New

Bug description:
  even on a fresh install and since many may years, despite even Debian
  Bug reports - e.g. #756277:

  There is an error with locale information for Kenya in ubuntu
  installation. Language is automatically set to 'Oromo' (understood
  only by a 3% minority of Ethiopian descent) yet the official languages
  in Kenya are (the not selectable) en-KE (somehow British English,
  Kenyan flavour, paper format A4, currency KES, currency format KES
  123,456.00 or 123,456/= ) and (the also not selectable) sw-KE (somehow
  Swahili, Kenyan flavour, paper format A4, currency KES, currency
  format KES 123,456.00 or 123,456/= )

  >>> please make work both locales, en-KE (default) and sw-KE. (Remove
  Oromo from Kenyan locales)
