BBC News 24

BBC News 24 – 9th January 2008 0.20 GMT featured an intriguing report by Adam Mynott in Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya. The report included interviews with the ‘street leaders’ and members of the Taliban ‘gang’ in the sprawling slum which saw some of the worst aspects of the recent post Elections violence.

The street leaders and youth don’t see the violence as ethnic but a battle between the corrupt rich and the poor. Unfortunately, they could not call or reach Kibaki about their concerns. This led to tragic consequences. This video clip if you get your hands on it would make an excellent case study and reference point for discussion concerning poverty, democracy and elections. Kibera was featured in the film ‘Constant Gardner.’ End
