Malik_Obama

The half-brother of United States President Barack Obama has accused the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of concealing official results of the Siaya governorship race. Malik Obama contested for the seat and finished third with 2792 votes. He accused the commission of being reluctant to release results from every polling station in the county.

He is due to stand trial on July 9. “If he refuses to go (to The Hague), then we have a problem. That means that they do not know the rule of law. You can’t establish a court and refuse to go when it calls you. If…

Kenya Elections: How The West Got it Wrong

Supporters

In 1982, as the air force-led coup attempt in Kenya unfolded, we sat glued to our transistor radio listening to the BBC and Voice of America. In fact, the more the oppressive the Moi regime censored Kenyan media, the more western media became the lifeline through which we learned what has happening in our own country. But in 2013, I and many other Kenyans saw the western media coverage of the Kenya elections as a joke, a caricature. Western journalists have been left behind by an Africamoving forward: not in a straight line, but in fits and starts, elliptically, and still full of…
