As Kenya heads toward a highly contested presidential election, many are worried about a repeat of deadly violence seen in past votes. The Kenyan group Mothers of Victims and Survivors is calling for all sides to maintain peace during this year's polls. Mathare, one of the biggest slums in Africa, with some of the most densely populated poor neighborhoods in Nairobi, has remained a constant hotspot of election violence. The group is urging election authorities and participants in the August presidential election to refrain from violence. But, as the clock ticks toward this year’s balloting, observers are cautiously optimistic that the polls will be peaceful.
