The Cafe travels to Nairobi this week to discuss what Kenyans and their prime minister think about unity and identity after an the 2007 election that sparked violence along ethnic lines.

Raila Odinga, Kenya's prime minister, says that ethnic divisions are the "disease of the elite", not the nation, who in competition for scarce resources spilt the people along their tribal lines.

Our guests discuss what it means to be Kenyan, the class and wealth divide, the culture of impunity, ethnic violence and the upcoming elections. Can Kenya heal its ethnic divide?

 

The Cafe airs each week at the following times GMT: Friday: 2000; Saturday: 1200; Sunday: 0100; Monday: 0600.
