A group of Kenyan political activists and graffiti artists stand back and admire their work in central Nairobi. The illegal mural is part of an ongoing anti-corruption campaign in the lead up to the elections in 2013.
Thought-provoking political murals adorn an entire wall in an attention-grabbing stunt by campaigners. The murals refer to scandals in which millions of dollars of public money has allegedly been stolen by corrupt politicians.
Campaigners have been spraying political graffiti across Nairobi in an underground campaign condemning Kenya(***)s politicians. Up to $1bn is estimated lost to corruption between 2002 and 2005.
Award-winning photojournalist-turned-political activist Boniface Mwangi is one of the key leaders of the movement and the brain behind these murals. He aims to bring about a (***)ballot revolution(***) by persuading Kenyans to vote out politicians suspected of corruption and exploitation.
Mwangi takes his photographs to numerous towns around the country. This display includes intense pictures of the chaos that followed the 2007 elections, in which more than 1,100 people were killed and up to 600,000 forcibly displaced.
Kenyan Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Minister of Parliament William Ruto have been charged with instigating the 2007 violence. Both are running for the Kenyan presidency in 2013.
