Bad news never came alone:

There were 27 dead after the election process in Kisumu. (more than 100 in the whole country). The local police was very agressive and unfair with the local and luo people. I’ve heard a few story about state force penetrating houses killing childrens and raping womens as part of the kikuyu domination. After election result Kisumu people went mad, police establish blockage all around the city center. People burned a lot of tyre and stuff….

Also the election result might have been “computer generated” for the sake of the governmnent in power. 3 week before the election the responsible of the IT security for the electoral commision (IEBC) was shot dead by some unknow people. His finger were cutted to keep the authentification fingerprint theat might have helped to enter and change the IEBC secured data…

A few NGO dealing with Human right were also put under pressure. They tried to expel or shut down their activities dealing with the fairness and the protest about the “computer generated” results….

The “opposition” has filled a request to the suprem court few days ago for the presidential election. In a lot of  constituency they were more votes than people registered. At the country level more than 130 petition were submitted.. The supreme court judgment should arrive around the 28 of august… Wait and see. … I feel like this young with bad rolling bearings in the middle of a big potato field.
