Outside the coastal and eastern provinces, most Kenyans are Christian. Muslims make up about 30% of the population and live mainly in the east of the country. In the more remote tribal areas you'll find a mix of Muslims, Christians and animists. Many of the traditional religions believe in one God, while they consider their ancestors as mediators before God and as protectors of the living. There is still a profound belief in magic and the local witch doctor is consulted about curses, while for physical ailments western medicine is used.
