Post Election Violence

His life had virtually screeched to a halt when he lost all his earthly possessions to the Post Election Violence associated with the elections of 2007, but a miraculous encounter with a church organization in Nakuru slums led to a turnaround in David Kamaus fortunes. What had gone wrong with our amazing country?, its the hope of all that a repeat of the Post Election Violence should not be experience again.

The Post Election Violence that rocked the country in the year 2007 and the resultant wanton destruction of life and property is a phenomenon Kenyans, indeed the entire world would love to completely erase from their memories.  Victim like David Kamau the vivid memories and images of the insane attacks meted out to them and their property, as the turmoil thickened, keep haunting their minds unbidden, the Post Election Violence was a horror that should never be repeated.

Prior to the Post Election Violence, Kamau, 29 had already curved the right niche for himself as a shrewd potato trader in Kuresoi. Twice a week he would hire a lorry to transport dozens of sacks of potatoes to Nairobi for sale.
