Kipkelion District, KENYA

Displaced Kikuyus take refuge in a church in Kipkelion District. Over 600 people are sleeping in the church after they were chased from their land by armed youths belonging to the Kalenjin tribe, supporters of opposition party, Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), and long time rivals to the Kikuyu community with whom they share the land. Ethnic violence sparked last December following protests against disputed election results, after suspected vote rigging by Kikuyu President Mwai Kibaki.
