Reaction to Kenya's Election

The Atlantic Council published on 14 August 2017 a commentary titled "The Kenyan Elections: Too Soon to Relax" by Bronwyn Bruton, Atlantic Council's Africa Center.

The author noted, perhaps perversely, that the recurrence of post-election violence is a testament to the strength rather than the weakness of Kenya's democracy when compared to wining outcomes in the high ninety percentiles in certain other countries.

African Arguments published on 18 August 2017 a commentary titled "Kenya Voted for Change and Got It . . . at the Local Level" by Hannah Waddilove, University of Warwick.

The author points out that while the incumbent president was reelected, over half of Kenya's incumbent governors and 62 percent of its members in the National Assembly lost their seats.
