Kenyatta's victory in Kenya and
Africa's Renaissance
Uhuru Kenyatta's triumph in last week's
presidential election in Kenya has far
reaching implications for Kenya, Africa, and
the world. Uhuru, a scion of the founding
president of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta faces
similar political circumstances like his father.
Prior to independence in 1963, the then
charismatic Jomo Kenyatta fought the British
colonial government. Half a century later,
Uhuru's presidential victory in the face of
modern imperialism epitomized in the conduct
of International Criminal Court (ICC) puts him
on a path to become the new symbol of
decolonization in Africa.
