The Kenyan and the International news agencies and others are reporting that a mob targeted and set fire to a church where over 200 innocent Kenyans including women and children were seeking shelter from the violence that started in the wake of the flawed election results. At least 35 Kenyans died in that fire. These thuggish mobs who have been looting, robbing and burning houses and businesses belonging Kenyans, mostly of the Kikuyu tribe.

This attack on innocents, especially those seeking shelter in a church, is a new low in Kenyan violence… honestly, this is a new low.
