Date: 2nd March 2017, 9 am to 12.30 pm
The panel discussion will focus on historical junctures and evolving contemporary events that may have an impact on the outcomes of the 2017 elections. The panel will discuss Kenya’s tumultuous political history and the place of the 2017 elections within it, the interactions between ethnicity and elections in Kenya and the impact of elections on socio-political and economic developments in Kenya and the wider region. The panellists will also guide us in reflecting how faith communities in Kenya may play a positive role towards a free, fair and peaceful election.
