Post election crisis

Most things have happened in Kenya due to the post election crisis.
Majority of the people who voted they did it fairly and peacefully but their is only one problem which happened like the delay of announcing the results from the polling stations which were closer to Nairobi.
The Elecoral Commission of Kenya never listened to the complains from the opposition side but in stead it favored the other side and therefore announced wrong figures for the result.

Most people from all over the country never allowed the results and therefore communities started to enemies.
Small girls really suffered psychologically on the result of the things which they saw, like people being shot, tear gas all over. There was no where one could get food especially in Kibera slums most houses were burnt down and therefor the kids ended up homeless.
Unexpected things happened and it became so difficult for the girls to go back to school as they used to do.
A long time grudge of tribalism that was never there before just erupted at once and more people were killed also including the disabled women and small kids.
It has been a bad experience for Kenyan Girls who needed to go back to school but their dreams have ended all at once. since their parents place of work was either destroyed or burnt and thats the only place they expected to get support from.

You still can make Kenya a better place for them if you support the girls to pursue their studies by sending your support to the bank account number on the side bar above.

You are writing very sad things... and the worst of all is the Western World's irritating apathy.

A big hug.

Rebecca, I'm so sorry these terrible things are happening. I wish I could help. I will keep your information alive on my blog. Please write more, and if you can persuade the girls to write, perhaps more people will hear their story and respond.

You are quite a courageous and creative woman, and I wish you all the best.

I sent you a donation. I wish I could send more, but that's what I can spare for now. Check your email. I sent it through Western Union. I emailed you the secret word.
