Kenya: A guide book to impunity is a 55 minute documentary produced by informAction, a Kenyan field based social justice organization.
In this stylistic visual opinion piece, Kenyan human rights defender, Maina Kiai, gives thought on how the 2013 election was used to protect local political icon, President Uhuru Kenyatta, from crimes against humanity charges by the International Criminal Court. The events have left hundreds of thousands of victims without hope of justice.
Kiai, an internationally renowned activist, combines his own on-the-ground experience as a voter and election observer to tell a gripping story with biting analysis. Using personal footage from the election, the national tallying centre, the Supreme Court and The Hague, he gives unique visualized insight to support his own outspoken views.
In dissecting Kenya’s controversial voting and legal approaches – and the international responses to them – Kiai compellingly demonstrates how elections have become the new ‘bloodless coup’ for authoritarian regimes.
InformAction will be hosting a viewing of this compelling film on the 4th of March at the Hekima College Auditorium, along Riara Road off Ole Odume Road from 6:00-8:00pm.
