Justice or peace

The conflict that erupted in Kenya after the presidential election in December 2007 exposed fissures in the facade of the leading East African country. Kenya found itself in a crisis where its population was forced to equilibrate between alternatives. Justice or peace. To break the law or to escape.

After New Year 2008 Kenya plunged into a deep crisis with ethnic cleansing, discourage tourists and an arriving humanitarian catastrophe. It all began the 30th of December, when the election result was made official and the president in power, Mwai Kibaki, was announced as the winner. Hasty and secretly he was sworn in for five more years at the power.

One month after the election more than 250.000 people have been displaced by the violence and the official death toll of 1000 is probably heavily under-estimated.
