In this episode of Head to Head, Mehdi Hasan challenges former Prime Minister Raila Odinga on the state of Kenya’s “tribal” democracy, political violence, impunity and corruption, and the rise of al-Shabab.
In this episode we explore Odinga’s defeat in a disputed election which triggered violence and put the country on the brink of civil war.
We challenge him on whether he did enough to stop the 2007/08 bloodshed, and ask him if there will ever be justice for the victims. We also explore his record fighting corruption while in office and the decision to send Kenyan troops into Somalia in 2011 to fight al-Shabab.
