Over the years, Kenya gave the impression of a relatively stable nationstate in sub-Saharan Africa and became one of the beacons of hope within the war-ridden Great Lakes Region of Africa (Anderson, 2005; Anderson, and Lochery, 2008; Lonsdale, 2008). However, the highly disputed elections in 2007/2008 and their aftermath, which led the International Criminal Court (ICC) to confirm charges against Uhuru Kenyatta, William Ruto and Joshua Sang, rejuvenated debates on Kenya’s political stability in the wake of global insecurity (Baretta, 2013; Onguny, 2012a; Onguny, 2012b). In addition, the contestation of the March 2013 presidential election results at the Supreme Court of Kenya, declaring Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto as winners, also adds to the growing uncertainty around Kenya’s political future, as the two principals face serious charges of crimes against humanity (Sharma, 2012).
