The title may be overexaggerated but I'm talking about these in the context of the goverment and politics. Kenya's corruption levels are considered pretty bad on a global ranking and if you went to visit, you wouldn't be surprised.

My question is, what's the cause of this? I know there are some 40-50 tribes fighting for resources and power in a heavily unequal society so how did this factor into the 2007 election clashes.

There's already an IT guy who was found mutilated, who do you think will be next?

All of this sounds really similar to me. As if Kenya is the only nation to go through political corruption.....

Lest we forget:

Somalia, South Sudan, North Korea and Syria are perceived to be the most corrupt countries in the world, according to Transparency International's latest annual review that draws on a mix of business and government sources for its rankings.
