Thiong’o on Kenya’s post-election violence

The BBC publishes renowned Kenyan author Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s views on Kenya’s post-election violence.  I think he goes too easy on the election rigging, but otherwise I agree with him.

For the sake of justice, healing and peace now and in the future I urge all progressive forces not to be so engrossed with the political wrongs of election tampering that they forget the crimes of hate and ethnic cleansing – crimes that have led to untimely deaths and the displacement of thousands.

The world does not need another Bosnia; Africa certainly does not need another Rwanda.
