Post election violence victims seek justice

15 July 2014, 19:32

Nairobi - An international human rights group says victims of the violence that killed more than 1,000 people and displaced more than 600,000 from their homes six years ago are still seeking justice and reparation.

Amnesty International said that the government and parliament have consistently obstructed efforts to investigate and prosecute those suspected of committing crimes under international law during 2007-08 post election violence.

The group's report says an announcement by Kenya's director of prosecution earlier this year that more than 4,000 cases cannot precede because of insufficient evidence suggests investigations were ineffective.

The country was plunged into violence following the disputed election of Mwai Kibaki as president in December 2007 polls. Kibaki's main challenger, opposition leader Raila Odinga, said the vote was rigged. International observers said it was flawed.
