How do I say I'm British?

I'm not American, Kenyan, Chinese, Tanzanian or Dutch...

Mimi ni Mwingereza

Really this means 'I am English'. But in Kenya, and in Swahili, they use the same word.

There are other words, but in practise not many people use or know these!

Mimi ni Mbritania - I am British

Mimi ni Mwelisi - I am Welsh

Mimi ni Mskoti - I am Scottish

Mimi ni Meira - I am Irish
