Here We Go Again

Who do you believe? The Police say the shot MP was having an affair with the girlfriend of the policeman who shot him. Others say that the female, who was also shot, is the cousin of the MP. And Raila Odinga says it was a political assassination to reduce his majority.

Does it really matter? A police officer shot two unarmed people, on the street. Whether it be a love triangle or not, he does not have this right.

Someone has died at the hands of a(nother) renegade police officer. It doesn't matter that the victim happens to be an MP.

Except that this is likely to start up the violence that had been cooling down this last 24 hours.

I hope that Kenya doesn't slide back to where is was only 48 hours ago, but I have a nasty feeling ...
