A Monday of restored peace in Nairobi and its surroundings and tourism on the Kenyan coast.
The two soulmates of Kenya who talk about themselves, being one of the most sought after holidaymakers, safari enthusiasts, and even recent businessmen, are reconciling with what is usually the "mood" of the African country: relaxation, serenity and Want to have fun.
If the resorts have never undergone the slightest blow of electoral echoes, and the savannah has quietly welcomed off-road caravans to attend the Great Migration show, a Saturday night screeching in the slums of the capital and some areas of Lake Victoria , Filled the news media not too reassuring.
Trying to put gas on fire on Sunday morning tested the defeated leader of the opposition, the old Raila Odinga (72) who tried to shake the people of the poor Nairobi neighborhoods, urging the people not to go to work the next day .
Almost unapproved appeals, as Nairobi has returned to business ever, after five days of stop between voting and waiting for results.
"A day like the other, with the usual crowding of open people, activities and offices and optimism around," says Roberto Marini, who lives and works in Nairobi, "the Kenyans are conscious of moving and working in a growing country."
Local media, and in particular the three daily newspapers, Daily Nation, Standard and The Star, emphasize the desire to return to the normal Kenyan life, which prevailed over the protests, even for those who are not happy with the choice of the majority of fellow citizens.
Among the important testimonies of the County Governor of Kisumu. Prof. Anyang Nyong'o (father of the beautiful actress of Hollywood Lupita), elected in Odinga's ODM, invited his fellow citizens not to follow the dictates of his leader, but asked them to go back to the offices to " Restart the country. " Many, interviewed by the Standard, gave the new Governor a reason, and others commented: "We protest with the heart, but we need to earn daily bread."
Peace bans on Nairobi and Nakuru, with nice initiatives: in the Kibera slum yesterday, as the international press agencies report, dozens of pacifist graffiti, featured by the solo artist Art4peace group led by Solo7, Century Solomon Muyundo.
Nakuru instead played a special football game, among local Kenyatta Jubilee Party supporters, with both party t-shirts and Odinga ODM fans. She has arbitrated the match with a police officer and the photos are going through Kenya and beyond, on social networks.
These are things to be talked about, while for today is expected another statement of the leader of the opposition alliance, while yesterday the reconfirmed President shook hands for the second time after the election, calling Odinga and his Allied to collaborating immediately to continue the development of the country, advising them to rely on Justice if they intend to resort to election results.
This is the climate in the north of the country, with the hope that one night of madness can be forgotten in the poorest parts of the country.
In the rest of Kenya it is August and it is coming alive for holidays for thousands of tourists from all over the world.
"Kenya's tourist sites have never been so quiet and hospitable - said the Kenya Tourist Federation President Mohammed Hersi - in the national parks, the Nature Show has attracted many people and so will be in the coming days."
Despite the alarmingness of some Italian travel agencies and some sites linked to them, the coast resorts also have a magical moment that is well-anticipated for the continuation of the season. Mombasa and Kilifi, among other things, celebrated the settlement of their Governors (opposition) and the reconfirmed Amason Kingi, leader of Kilifi County, of whom Malindi and Watamu are part, welcomed the press and supporters with a T-shirt Explanatory: "Keep Calm and Hakuna Matata".
