The history of interpratation is as old as the deaf culture itself. wherever daef people have been, intepratation has always been there. deaf people, of course, do not live in isolation. they live amid thier brothers and sisiters and other relatives. According to the Kenya campaign on disability and HIV and AIDS advocacy, propoasl 2008, approximately 3.5 people in Kenya are currently living with disabilities. This translates to an approximately 800.000 deaf people out of the population of about 35million  people in Kenya. This population makes, or will make use of interpratation in settings such as courts of law, police stations, and so forth. interpreters act as a bridge between hearing and deaf people inn terms of communication. This chapter gives an overview of the situation of kenyan sign Language(KSL)  interpratation in Kenya by giving a historical perspective, the role of Kenya National Association of the Deaf (KNAD), Kenya Sign Language Research project (KSLRP) and the role of other institutions including the Kenya Sign Language Interpreters Association (KSLIA) in interprter training and concludes by giving recommendations in the way forward.
