ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the political conditions in Kenya. The country has maintained considerable political stability until post-election political unrest struck in early 2008. Kenyans held democratic and open elections in December 2002, which were described by international observers as free and fair. Serious irregularities marred the December 2007 elections that resulted in a wave of violence across the country.
