Saw some very disturbing pictures from Kenya.They spoke volumes.Kenya,the Kenya of Ngugi wa'Thiongo's Weep Not Child is at war with itself,killing and devouring its own all in the name of electoral violence. One particular picture of a young boy who was obviously screaming on sighting a Policeman was quite captivating. See the fear and pain in the innocent Boy's eyes.I kept wondering what must have happened to the poor child.(Hope he wasn't tortured or killed?You never can tell with all these trigger happy Zombies African leaders readily deploy to quel demonsrations.) I watched on BBC how a ruthless Kenyan policeman gunned down an unarmed protester and went ahead to kick the felled dying man.God,why is life so worthless in Africa?
