Police Brutality in Kenya: A Deadlier Threat Than COVID-19?
Dozens of protests against police brutality emerged across major American cities in 2020. These protests have evolved in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, which gained momentum with the murder of George Floyd. Yet, these protests have long existed in other parts of the world. People in Kenya, for instance, have been fighting against similar injustices for decades. These uprisings have gathered a growing following and have united with the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States. In Nairobi, hundreds of people have taken to the streets to condemn the brutal acts of violence inflicted by the police. However, this conflict has been accentuated and simultaneously side-swept by a new, headline-dominating threat: The Coronavirus pandemic.
