Kenya held general elections on 9th August to a plethora of positions including its presidency. This contest was won narrowly by William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance, in a victory which is now being tested. We're joined by Dr. Fred Ajwang of Kings College London to dive into the world of Kenyan politics, a world of clientelism, ethnic voting and big personalities that makes for a competitive, albeit flawed, democracy.
