Yesterday's explosion in the Nairobi CBD has been reported by Kenyan Police as having been conducted by anti government elements.
In the lead up to elections in Kenya the attack was proof of a porous security architecture that is concerning Kenyan society. The general feeling in the City is one of concern. Recent hand grenade attacks (2) last Saturday is testing the confidence of the Kenyan people in their security forces.
The additional pressure of elections, and the associated build up, has the real potential to be a fuel source for additional anti government violence seeking to discredit the national government.
