Kwani? 08 : Uchaguzi ’13

by Kwani? Trust

KES 1,400

This Kwani? issue takes us back to some of those bug-bears of [Kenya’s] 2013. It looks in detail at some of the Uchaguzi ’13 campaigns, questions around IDPs, the Constitution ad asks how all these might be connected to our current political reality in Kenya. This issue takes the time to consider what came to pass after the promulgation of the new constitution and before the Westgate attacks. How did new players like Murkomen and Sonko wage their campaigns? How did Raila Odinga lose? What did the emergence of MRC mean for elections at the Coast? What did the emergence of the County mean for Uchaguzi ’13?

These are some of the issues that Kwani? 08 addresses through poetry and fiction, non-fiction and interviews, photography and cartoons. This issue also looks at how we attempted to go digital. Tuko digital. Tuko digital. Tuko digital.
