The Rigged Election

Three years ago in Kenya, there was post-election violence that was to be done. Two gentlemen causes the death rate to Kenyans. However the two gentlemen were struggling fro president. Kenya struggle that Luos people have never been a president since independence. this came as a result of fierce riot. Youths were celebrating after burning our houses and our car. This causes displacement of us and people whom houses were burnt to look for a narrow escape. This causes victims of riots when my prayer died because of two gentlemen. That day I could not get enough food and shelter. I could not have a chance to go to school. When the two gentlemen sent soldiers to come and calm the country to be in peace. That day, I could not forget when I remained an orphan. I did not go to school to take knowledge to feed myself. this cause drop out to look for food.
