Another night I was a doctor,

Busily treating the hurt…

Anyone but al-Shabaab: Kenya’s political divisions laid bare by spiraling attacks

Weeks after deadly attacks killed 60 at Mpeketoni in Kenya’s Lamu County, new raids on July 5th in Lamu and Tana River counties left over 20 dead, sowing fear anew in a country growing accustomed to sophisticated attacks of murderous brutality.
