Zambian English Accent closest to Neutral Kenyan English Accent

#1
Is it just me or does anyone else find the average neutral Zambian accent the closest to the Neutral Kenyan accent ? Like, the one without heavy influence of tribal mother-tongue pronunciation. The average urban Zambian English accent to me sounds exactly same as the average Kenyan Urban one.
Save for the occasional Southern African Wek for work, which Kenyans would tend towards Wak , and a few other words like First (Fest vs Fast).

There is no urban english in Kenya. Sample this: si you see, me is like I like that guy, juu people say he is good.
Secondly, every body has an accent, that is how you are able to know an american and a british english speaker.

urban accent. Haven't you realized a Teso that lived mostly in the city and schooled in the average city council primary has the same accent as a Meru who did the same ? On average.
