LET'S TALK ABOUT THE LEGACY OF KENYAN ELECTIONS
Join us for a special screening of "Under Your Watch" and a live conversation
So much has been said about electoral justice in Kenya, but what does justice really look like to those who became victims during Kenya’s fraught election cycles? Africa Uncensored’s senior reporter, Joy Kirigia asked herself this and many other searching questions as she produced this story, streaming now on the content platform Shahara.
“I could see the pain that they (victims of violence) were in, and how anxious they are becoming as the 2022 elections approach. It is frustrating that the same cast of leaders who promised justice before are here today, and nothing has changed” she said in an interview for this post.
Today, Thursday the 9th of September at 6 pm, Joy leads a discussion about her documentary, and the wider questions it raises about justice, memory, and inequality in Kenya. Joy will be joined by Transitional Justice expert Christine Alai, Nerima Wako-Ojiwa, the Executive Director of Siasa Place. Author, and humanitarian Redempter Mwikali and John Waiganjo, a commissioner with the Independent Policing Oversight Authority will also be joining the panel. The discussion will be preceded by a
special screening of “Under Your Watch”. All of this will be happening on the Africa Uncensored Youtube page. Use this link to join.
