From Ian Logan's excellent page (link), (http://www.ianlogan.co.uk/sequences_by_group/haplogroup_select.htm) I don't see any M1a1 samples from Kenya in GenBank. If your dad tested the full sequence, you might find a closer match on Ian's page.

No sign of Kenya indeed, it could be me and my dad have links to Tanzania maternally just because there were two Tanzanian samples with the M1a1 haplogroup. There was a lot of migration back in the times of the Swahili city states...
