Kenya: Aid Focus Shifts Away From Peace Efforts | allAfrica

Just a few weeks after the Kenyan general election, some donors have shifted their funding to new areas like governance and a process of devolution which is transferring powers from the centre to county level.

That inevitably means less money is available to fund projects designed to reduce the inter-communal tensions that still exist five years after Kenya was swept by a wave of ethnic violence.
