Official Death Toll Kept Low

Nishant at Free Freedom reports that refugees fleeing into Tanzania are saying that the death toll following Kenya’s rigged elections is much higher than the one given by the government. Kenyan police say “We have at least 600 dead … some bodies are still in the bushes where fighting occurred,” while the government claims the death toll stands at 486. But there are bodies that have been apparently dumped in bushes and those which are still lying in people’s homes.

The UN-backed International Conference on the Great Lakes Region said the killings were “akin to ethnic cleansing and genocide“.
