Kenya's 2013 Presidential Election: A Qualified Success
Many international observers billed Kenya's 2013 presidential election a success for its lack of political violence. This assessment is valid when basing success against the numbers of dead and displaced following the country's disputed 2007 presidential election. However, even though they failed to surface in the 2013 election, much of the underlying political and ethnic tensions that drove the violence in 2007 are still prevalent today. These issues include weak political coalitions, ethnicity based political parties, land access, and clientelism. Contrasting the historical framework of the above issues against recent field analyses, research from commissioned investigative bodies, and local media reporting reaffirms that the tensions still exists; and, if not addressed may cause a repeat of Kenya's 2007 post-election violence in the country's subsequent election.
