Kenya held it’s generational edition on August 8th to elect the President and other members of the government. The top two candidates was current President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. Despite the country holding a democracy and many polls showing that Odinga received the votes, Kenyatta was announced as the continued President.
News have stated that the election has been rigged by votes being tampered with and counting being changed. This has brought on a series of issues from civil unrest, murders, to protests. Some areas have reported that tires and vehicles have been burned to show opposition and tear gas being thrown into crowds. People have been beaten, houses burned, and citizens murdered in order to silence people form protesting their opinions. In fact, while we were overseas we were forced to evacuate Kibera due to safety concerns and large protests.
