2017 Elections

On August 8 Kenya votes in its fifth set of elections since the end of the one-party state in 1991. Three of the previous four elections were marred by violence, including the 2007-2008 election when 1,100 people were killed and 650,000 displaced.
Party election activities in April were fraught with violence and rights abuses and public confidence in many of the institutions designed to alleviate these tensions is low.

Ongoing violence in the Rift Valley is causing insecurity and forced displacement that could potentially keep thousands of people from voting in the August 2017 national elections.

A number of families in the slum have begun to relocate upcountry as tension is building slowly among the community.
