Due to numerous reasons including poverty, many women from Kibera Slums are suffering from alcoholism. Despite the many side effects, It has become a routine for ladies at the age of twenty-five and above to take alcohol during their daily activities. While some might take alcohol as a way of celebration and connecting with friends and family during fun moments, Women here consume it to relieve stress and help them forget about their problems back home. This is often due to lack of job opportunities and support from their husbands. Women in Kibera especially the widows are unable to cope with the never ending family responsibilities, and therefore spend any amount they get on alcohol to temporarily forget about their lives hardship. The high level of alcohol consumption has led to an increased rate of death, blindness and dangerous diseases such as cancer, hypertension, blindness and traumatic injuries with young children left behind as orphans or single parented. It has also lead to the risk of unprotected sexual relations and high chances of women getting raped by unknown villagers around the community, leading to unwanted pregnancies. This has led to further spread of HIV/Aids around the slums and has left many children and neighbors taking care of children left without parents.
When Kenyans wanted a new Democracy so did they want someone who could lead the democracy and the republic in a well and fair way without including any tribal wars and lack of opportunities to job access in favor of the political leading tribes. In August 2017 when Kenyans had to cast their votes to elect in their new presidential candidates who were Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. The results of the presidential election were subsequently annulled after the Voting and fresh elections were ordered to be held within 60 days. This caused commotions in different parts of the country as the National Super Alliance(NASA) supporters and members of parliament thought the elections were not fair. This resulted in fights between Kenyans including the use of live bullets by the antiriot Police Officials while trying to stop the Violence. President Kenyatta had maintained 10+% lead over Odinga in most polls for many weeks, but the two most recent polls before the election suggested a much closer race. The outcome was reported as a 9.5-percentage-point victory for Kenyatta. On 10 August, provisional results released by the Kenyan electoral commission put Kenyatta ahead by 54.2% to Odinga's 44%. The head of the EU delegation Marietje Schaake said there had been no sign of manipulation of the result at a central or local level and urged all sides to accept the result.
