Kenya has been among Africa’s economic and political ‘successes’ since independence in 1963. Nairobi is one of the continent’s premier cities. I arrived two days after the national presidential elections on December 27, 2008. The results were angrily disputed and riots broke out all over the country. Some of the images (Nairobi Gallery 1, #40-52) reveal the bad news and the presence of riot police on the streets of Nairobi. From January to April the violence caused about 1500 deaths nationwide and displaced hundreds of thousands of people. Four months after the elections, the political rivals finally settled on how to share power in an unfriendly coalition government.The images in this gallery portray a city at peace and experiencing relative prosperity.
