Things Are Getting Nasty

The election is still set for the 26th of this month. The drama level is rising and things are getting violent. Yesterday there was trouble in the Central Business District (CBD). There were shootings (bullets sprayed at protestors from a car) and a protestor was hit by a car. As a result, people started to throw stones at any passing car. There were also violent protests and looting in the town of Kisumu.

It’s not a good sign. But, we’ll see what happens. Overall things are still mostly quiet in Nairobi, as long as you avoid CBD on Mondays and Fridays.

I’m still hopeful for overall peace, but yesterday wasn’t good.
