The path towards democracy in Kenya has been long and often
tortuous. Though it has been trumpeted as a goal for decades,
democratic government has never been fully realised, largely as a
result of the authoritarian excesses of the Kenyatta, Moi and
Kibaki regimes. This uniquely comprehensive study of Kenya's
political trajectory shows how the struggle for democracy has been
waged in civil society, through opposition parties, and amongst
traditionally marginalised groups like women and the young. It also
considers the remaining impediments to democratisation, in the form
of a powerful police force and damaging structural adjustment
policies. Thus, the authors argue, democratisation in Kenya is a
laborious and non-linear process. Kenyans' recent electoral
successes, the book concludes, have empowered them and
reinvigorated the prospects for democracy, heralding a more
autonomous and peaceful twenty-first century.
