Kenya (updated)

Posted by Gerald on July 7, 2007

American politicians often hold up Kenya as an example of democratic success and stability in Africa.  This article from “The Nation” in Nairobi is looking back from nine years after the “Second Liberation.”  It is worth a read if you have any interest in Africa.

This is interesting both for its summation of where Kenya has gone, and as a good example of the problems that have and still do plague many of the democratic governments in Africa.

BTW: When this article got posted to the allAfrica website, KANU (Kenyan African National Union) got rendered as “Kanu”.  It can be confusing if you do not know what the KANU is.

(This editorial – also from “The Nation” gives a bit more context to the other one.)
