POLITICS 
Independent from Britain in 1963 and now a multiparty state, many of Kenya's political battles are over a promised but overdue new constitution, rampant corruption and improvement of education and the economy. A controversial election in 2007 was followed by two months of violence and ethnic conflict which only ended through the establishment of a coalition government; it will be a challenge for the two major political opponents to work well together.
