This second 400 pages of a twin edition further examines Kenya in the context and violent aftermath of its 2007 elections. Here, writers, photographers, poets and cartoonists provide further collective narratives on what we were before, and what we became, during the epochal first 100 days of 2008. The issue also features an extended travel piece based in Uganda that comparatively explores the concept of ethnicity, and the history of a people in a space other than our own.
