Kenya: chaos after election, coast is quiet

11 killed in Mathare, riots in Kisumu, Mombasa enjoy for Governors

Kenya is a big nation three times Italy and much harder to travel than any European nation in its entirety.
In today's post-election protests, following the appointment of Uhuru Kenyatta as Kenya's President for the next five years, there is no doubt that major geopolitical and ethnic differentiation will be made for those who do not know enough about the African country In question and maybe even booked a holiday, a safari, a business trip at this time or in the near future.
There have been clashes tonight and this morning in Kenya, but exclusively (for now and hopefully no more today, on which the issue is still hot and lit, and the disappointment of a political, social and ethnic faction is still alive as an open wound ) In two peripheral slums in Nairobi, the most impenetrable bidonville for tourists and the Westerners, unless brave journalists and people tied to international organizations are excluded.
More or less as in other areas of the disadvantaged world and always on the line of rebellion given by misery and human conditions to the limit.
This is certainly a limit to a country in economic and social growth like Kenya, but no commentator, journalist or politologist in good faith should feel able to blame that or this politician. No one has ever defended a line of last, almost annoying beings that the world system, not just the African one (ghettos historically do not arise in Africa) confined there.
In any case, what our portal, which was born as a journalistic information site aimed at the purely Italian tourism and voted to promote the Kenyan territory, especially its coast, but also the natural and scenic beauty that can be reached from Mombasa, Malindi And Nairobi, can do is try to inform without the least interest in dramatizing, but not even without having to defend anything and no one, considering its readers vaccinated to the way the world is nowadays.
Between yesterday and today there were about 10 deaths in the slum of Mathare and several wounded in clashes between demonstrators, certainly not peaceful even in the slum of Kibera and in the outskirts of Kisumu, Kenya's third town and the historic stronghold of the Opposition, Luo is the same as President Odinga's candidate.
In the rest of Kenya, the sources of local agencies and newspapers, as well as numerous friends and correspondent volunteers from malindikenya.net, are calm.
At celebrations for Kenyatta the many towns of the Rift Valley and the calm of downtown Nairobi and its residential quarters, echoes the celebration in a serene Mombasa of the two confirmed Governors of Mombasa County precisely, and that of Kilifi which also affects the resorts Tourist attractions of Malindi and Watamu. Hassan Joho and Amason Kingi celebrated together and the joyful climate of their election has wiped out the local disappointment for the non-affirmation of the alliance's leader of the two.
So for all those who are in Malindi and Watamu, there is no problem (hakuna matata as it is said here) and even in Mombasa, where many flights of those heading to the coast are landing, the situation is under control.
