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) -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Translations Coordinators, which is subscribed to Ubuntu Translations.

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.
