Post Electiom Vilolence

It was in 2007 when our country was going for elections to elect thei new president ,Tghe campaighns went on well and Kenyans wre ready for elections.The day came fo the elections and passed well.Votes were counted and results came out. The Kenyans were not impressed by the results.The clashes started and people died not even young people or babies were spared and the whole country was so sad.It was so bad for hose people who caused those problems. Women and girls wre raped and killed. However we burned because of tribalism it was bout leadership this problem was so sad that even now we still have people who are homeless.So the international criminal coiurt decided to form a coalition government .In order to help these peole who were affected .Can you just imagine a girl in the slums withoud pads an dnopbody realy cares for you, it is just you to struggle for yourself in order to get what you want. Right now there is peace but some people stll live out there not in their homes and our politicians in their offiec enjoying themselves .I just pray that one day justice will be done.
