“[W]hy do the elections in Kenya matter not just to Kenyans but to the rest of the African continent and the world?” writes Hamza Mohamed. “Nairobi is East Africa’s economic hub, and the country is the second-largest economy in the region…. The port in Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa serves neighboring landlocked countries…. If elections disrupt this transport corridor … the price of everyday goods, such as rice and cooking oil, could rise significantly…. Kenya is home to several UN and humanitarian agencies that oversee relief efforts in the region.
