Kenya

 
A woman walks with her ballot cards in the Eastleigh district of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, on March 4, during the nationwide election. Eastleigh is known locally as "Little Mogadishu" due to the number of ethnic and national Somalis living there. The election is seen as a crucial test for Kenya, with leaders vowing to avoid a repeat of the bloody 2007-8 post-poll violence in which over 1,100 people were killed and observers repeatedly warning of the risk of renewed conflict.
