Kenya political satire targets corruption

Cartoon satirists take aim at politicians and expose the truth in an effort to raise public debate.

    Kenyan political satirists aim to tell the truth about Kenyan politics.

    They say that while the country claims to be democratic, it is still practicing tribalism and panders towards corruption.

    Their shows aim to bring out the issues that affect Kenya as a whole - to use humour as a way of dealing with difficult subjects to raise public debate over subjects that might otherwise stay off the agenda.
