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.
