Election Monitoring in Kenya
Following a High Court ruling earlier in 2012, Kenya will hold general elections on March 4, 2013 to choose a president, members of parliament, and local representatives. Many are concerned about the upcoming election, especially as the election 2007 was met with political unrest and tensions between various groups and ethnic groups. The youths of various regions, including in Mathare, are working to ensure that the upcoming election is peaceful, free and fair, and transparent. Mathare was recently granted a representative for its constituency.
