Abstract:

Source: Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (---- Census) challenges and Threats To Stability Ethnic Polarisation: Despite fears that the election would lead to a repeat of the communal bloodshed that marked polls in ----, Kenya experienced a peaceful transfer of power in ----. The losing candidate, outgoing Prime Minister Raila Odinga, took his protests about the result to the courts (as opposed to the streets as was the case in ----) and respected the judici- ary s decision. ...This may prove tricky given that the vast swathes of land owned by the Kenyatta family are widely regarded as being emblematic of the problem. International Pressure On President: Kenyatta s victory led some observers to predict a politically damaging clash between the president � who is accused of committing crimes against humanity during the ---- election and has refused to fully cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) � and Western backers of the court.

However, with many of these rural and coastal areas already among the country s most economically marginalised and home to sizeable Muslim and Somali communities, the risk of home-grown radicalisation is an issue that the government appears now to be more serious about tackling. Long-Term Political outlook ethnic Polarisation remains Key challenge ...However, with many of these rural and coastal areas already among the country s most economically marginalised and home to sizeable Muslim and Somali communities, the risk of home-grown radicalisation is an issue that the government appears now to be more serious about tackling. Long-Term Political outlook ethnic Polarisation remains Key challenge

...The politicisation of sharp ethnic divisions remains the key threat to Kenya s long-term political stability. Although the ---- elections were peaceful, voting patterns show that the electorate continues to cast ballots according to its ethnicity. ...
