Join us for a discussion on Kenya’s upcoming national elections, scheduled for August 8th. Although Kenya is considered a positive example of democracy in Africa, elections have not always been peaceful, credible, or free. Primary elections earlier this year deteriorated into chaos and violence in some counties, and the specter of the 2007-08 post-election violence still looms. Perennial challenger Raila Odinga has warned of the potential for electoral fraud and appears to have popular support for his claim, heightening tensions in the run-up to the vote. Panelists will discuss how domestic and international players can help to restore public confidence in the electoral process and assure safety at the polls.
