Reports from Kenya

Report #145
January 19, 2011

V O T E

During the next election when you are thinking you are too busy to vote, remember this story:

The Quaker Peace Network-Africa sent four election observers to watch the referendum vote for the independence of southern Sudan from Sudan. They observed in an out of the way rural area (most international observers were in Juba and the other larger towns).

One of the observers was Getry Agizah, the Coordinator of the Friends Church Peace Teams (FCPT). She reported that in the place where they were observing some voters walked for three days to reach their polling station in order to cast their ballots for independence. I presume it then took them three days to return home.

Peace,
Dave
