Kenya. Rift Valley province. Nakuru. 25.01.2008. A group of Kikuyu policemen with military outfitts looks at the body of a dead black man from the Kalenjin tribe. One policeman checks the identity card. The man, lying on the ground, was lynched by a group of men, stoned to death and his body set on fire. Inter-ethnic strife. Ethnic cleansing and purification. Capital offense. The Kikuyus are Kenya's most populous ethnic group. Kalenjin is another ethnic group of Nilotic origin living in the Great Rift Valley in western Kenya. © 2008 Didier Ruef
