The witnesses who will never speak

Not everyone who can bear witness to what really happened during post-election violence is alive to do so. This BBC programme talks about those Mungiki members who began to ‘disappear’ (i.e. were brutally executed) shortly after the 2008 violence. It also has a unique angle as the reporter interviews one of the widows of the disappeared- most of the interviews I’ve seen on the issue have been with colleagues of the deceased, or with civil society activists seeking the truth behind the killings.
