INFOGRAPHIC: Security Forces Violations in Kenya’s August 2017 Elections – Amnesty International report
On August 8, 2017, Kenya held presidential elections in which the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta was re-elected amid allegations of electoral fraud.
The vote, which has since been annulled by Kenya’s supreme court following the opposition’s legal challenge, was also marred by serious human rights violations, especially in opposition strongholds in Nairobi, western Kenya, and Coast.
Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch released a report based on a research done between August 9 and September 12, 2017.
The report focused on events in Nairobi’s informal settlements in the aftermath of polling and the announcement of results on August 11.
