Inside Story – A recipe for renewed unrest in Kenya?


The president of Kenya has reacted to the Supreme Court’s annulment of his re-election by saying there’s a ‘problem’ with the judiciary which must be ‘fixed’. Uhuru Kenyatta’s also described the judges as crooks and thugs. His rival Raila Odinga – who complained last month’s vote was fixed – is calling for leaders of the election commission to face criminal charges. Its been ordered to re-run the election in the next two months – and pressure is mounting on the commission to ensure a fair vote. So, what’s next for Kenya? And will the surprise decision by judges strengthen democracy in Kenya?
