To add to the confustion, I pulled out my Kem Kem sample, and this is what
I found on the card from the dealer:
Kem Kem
Stone Chondrite
Found: August 1999
Dahara, Morocco
TKW: Unknown

As you said, sometimes more questions than answers. Since the
classification was apparently only tentative, I'm no longer sure which one
I have, especially if more than one fall/find are now called Kem Kem!
