Kenya's Violent Rift

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two EnglandLatest broadcast: on BBC One East Midlands

Emeka Onono investigates the aftermath of the horrifying violence that took place in Kenya's Rift Valley in 2008.

When the country's minority tribes cried foul over the general election result, ethnic violence flared across Kenya. A peace deal was finally brokered and the government line is now that all is well. But thousands of people are still in unofficial refugee camps, too scared to return home.

Emeka meets young men involved in the killings, who are preparing for the next round of bloodletting. Inquiries have also pointed the finger at senior politicians for organising the butchery, but there seems to be little chance of any of them being brought to justice. Show less
