Waiting for Justice: Kenya's Mt. Elgon Region

Approximately 300 Kenyans were forcibly disappeared in Kenya’s Mt. Elgon region between 2006 and 2008 after being either arrested by Kenyan security forces or abducted by the militia group SLDF. Three years after a military operation that aimed to flush out the militia – an operation that was accompanied by serious human rights abuses, including summary executions, enforced disappearances, and torture – the government has taken no action to shed light on the plight of the disappeared or to provide their families with access to justice.
