Kenya at the polls

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 04 March 2013

For decades Kenya was an African success story, a peaceful democracy with enviable economic growth. That all changed after an explosion of ethnic violence that followed the last general election.

Kenya goes to the polls again today and Justin Rowlatt asks if a repeat of those events can be avoided and the economy can continue to grow.

We've got Ed Stourton in Niarobi, a letter from our regular contributor in Kenya, Wycliff Muga, and a top Africa analyst with her insights into the country's economy.

Plus: Lucy Kellaway on why the toughest inquisitor isn't the grizzled network TV anchor but the wide eyed and innocent infant.
