Kenya's 6th Census Done Amid Some Resistance

The week-long national population and households census has exposed bottled-up anger among citizens with the government, with the authorities dealing with many cases involving census officials. There were reported cases of a rape and assault on enumerators, and nearly 100 people were arrested for either attacking or obstructing the census personnel.
