At least people were injured and 37 were killed, most of them shot by police, the Kenya Human Rights Commission reported.
And those were only the reported cases from the first election. Thirty-one-year-old Ruth Khavere, a housecleaner and single mother of two from the Luhya tribe in Western Kenya, lost her year-old brother to violence in August. Her brother and father were crossing a street in broad daylight when they were shot by unknown assailants. His girlfriend gave birth to their first and only son that very night. Then, another doctor told them two police officers had stopped by and collected the bullets to open an investigation. Khavere decided not to pursue the case. They demand money to help us, and I don't have money to waste.
Several judges and election officials have been intimidated and killed since the election process began. The gruesome torture and murder of election official Chris Msando before the August vote was followed by the injury of the bodyguard of the deputy chief justice of the Supreme Court in a suspicious roadside shooting on October The following day, the Supreme Court lacked a quorum to vote on a last-minute petition to postpone the election.
Only two of the seven justices were in attendance.
