Kenya: Human Rights Watch Report Warns of Violence Due to Lack of Reforms

Government's failure to address ongoing and past human rights abuses have contributed to tension across the country which could spill over into the elections.

A Human Rights Watch Report shows that the country is at risk of violence due to failure by the government to carry out needed reforms. The report recommends the arrest and trial of all those who directly incite or organize violence, to help ensure the elections are peaceful, free, and fair.
