There needs to be a new generation of leaders in Africa that are untied to the complicated histories of their countries’ pasts
Anyone concerned about peace, security, and human progress in Africa generally, and in East Africa in particular, should be keenly following the ongoing governance and constitutional developments in Kenya.
To argue that Kenya’s Supreme Court ruled against a presidential election because it is “independent” is the same as saying eggs come from the supermarket. The story is more complex.
Kenya mainstream media’s escape into “peace journalism” has turned it into a bystander, creating a vacuum that has now been filled by fake news.
Even if the political rhetoric in this Kenya election was angry and divisive, it still did not fall to the ethnic-filled bile of 2007 and 2013.
