The suffering Kenyan grass

I’ve seen a lot of stories about the violence in Kenya, and most have been lacking in depth and context. I was relieved, then, to find that PBS’s Frontline has a dispatch from the Kenyan journalist, Edwin Okong’o on the tribal politics of Kenya and the violence that has ensued over the recent contested election. There isn’t really a money quote; the issues Okong’o recounts don’t lend themselves to blog-bytes. Read the whole thing.
