Kenya: Crying for justice: Victims’ perspectives on justice for the post-election violence in Kenya
More than six years ago, violence rocked Kenya following general elections. At least 1,100 people were killed, 660,000 displaced and thousands injured in beatings, machete attacks, rapes and police shootings. The Kenyan authorities have failed to conduct thorough investigations into serious crimes committed during the violence, and impunity remains pervasive. This report calls on the government of Kenya to fulfil its obligations to investigate and prosecute post-election crimes and to provide reparation to victims. It also recommends actions to be taken by the ICC, the international community and intergovernmental organizations.
