Kenya is a country at a crossroad, struggling to manage a unique transition. Members of the former totalitarian regime still remain in control of the government after 18 years, since the start of pro-democracy campaigns for change. Minimum success has been achieved, including the current multi-party democracy from singe party rule, but redress for past injustices remain unattended.
