Unfolding Kenya's Political Situation
The current political situation following the nullified election in Kenya is alarming. Melton Fellow Tito Magero is from Kenya but studies with many other Kenyan students at Ashesi University in Ghana. Many of his peers remain in silent about the turmoil and hold the fear that engaging in political discussions could result in misunderstanding and mistrust.. Tito decided to break the silence. Tito, together with his lecturer Kajsa Adu Hallberg, moderated a lunch discussion about the underlying issues that led to the turmoil seen in Kenya.
The activity provided a safe space to get people with opposing views to talk to each other in a respectful and trustful manner. It was key that Tito provided some background information to create a common ground for discussions. As a follow-up, he plans to continue working on political discussions that are relevant to what is happening around the world.
