Summary:The author believes that Kenya's resilience lies not only in the vigour of its political institutions, but in its capacity to stage debates about the country's cultural attitudes and beliefs. She discusses how Kenya survives, the subtle interplay of repressive and democratic forces in Kenyan political life, the case study of a battle between a Kikuyu widow and her Luo husband's clan, the fight to keep Nairobi green among other topics.
