Protests and civil disobedience in Kenya

It looks like the police are bent on not allowing any peaceful protests to go ahead.

I feel sad, and uncomfortable that the Kenyan police chief in Kisumu admitted that she ordered her officers to fire on a rioting crowd.

Human rights workers say Kisumu suffered the worst police brutality. A witness says that the police are shooting opposition protesters indiscriminately.

Why are the Kenyan people not allowed to protest peacefully?

I hope that civil disobedience is considered, as then it seems that less people will lose their lives.

The opposition have called for a coalition government to end the political crisis.

The solution may be in a new constitution.


Kenya police caught on tape shooting kids.

This is unacceptable. Who is issuing orders that kids need to be killed?
