This is complicated as weather patterns across Africa are becoming increasingly unpredictable. It is not uncommon to see downpours in the middle of deserts and damaging droughts when rains should be falling. Generally speaking, Kenya has two seasonal rains, the 'long rains' which fall between mid March and May and the 'short rains' which usually run from November until early December.
