Kenya's Unfinished Democracy:

A Human Rights Agenda For The New Government

Legacy Link
The hotly-contested December 27 election has highlighted serious human rights shortcomings in Kenya, Human Rights Watch said today. As the election approaches and Kenya’s draft constitution awaits enactment, Human Rights Watch released a new report urging all candidates to adhere to a clear human rights agenda, which would address the iniquities and abuses that persist in the East African country. The 34-page report, “Kenya’s Unfinished Democracy: A Human Rights Agenda for the New Government,” reveals that while Kenya has gained many important freedoms since the early 1990s, and is considered a relatively free and open society– especially in comparison with many other African countries– a closed system of patronage and graft continues to undermine human rights in the country.
