Kenya’s Political Situation to Worsen-US Intelligence Predicts

The US has predicted a dire political impasse in Kenya that could lead to a revolution following last year’s controversial elections.

The US intelligence noted that Kenya and Ethiopia face similar problems and are likely to face far much worse political instability in 2018.

According to the US, the people in these countries may seek redress with regard to various grievances raised during the post election period.
“The Ethiopian and Kenyan Governments are likely to face opposition from public agitating for redress of political grievances,” reads part of a report by the agencies.
The report further says Somalia’s recently elected government probably will struggle to project its authority and implement security reforms amid the downsizing of African Union troops in 2018, while al-Shabaab— the most potent terrorist threat to US interests in Kenya—will probably take advantage of the situation and increase its attacks.
The report titled-Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community- was presented to Capitol Hill by the US director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats(pictured above).
The warning by the US intelligence on Kenyan politics comes at a time when foreign envoys in Kenya are pushing for dialogue after the highly contested polls.

The diplomats urged National Super Alliance(NASA) leader Raila Odinga to accept the legitimacy of Kenyatta’s presidency  as the basis for the dialogue that it (the opposition) and Kenyans want.

“We are deeply concerned by recent political developments in Kenya. Both the government and the opposition have taken steps that have undermined Kenya’s institutions, and driven wedges among its citizen,” the envoys,led by US ambassador Robert Godec, said in a statement.
