August 15, 2021 has been marked as a significant date in the recent history of Afghanistan. A year has passed since the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan for the second time. A year has passed since those days when the world’s attention was focused on the mass evacuations of Afghans through the Kabul airport, with dramatic scenes only comparable to movies. A year has passed since the departure of the international forces from Afghanistan after 20 years.

Washington’s withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021 created a problem for China on the border of one of its most volatile regions in Xinjiang. While Beijing was not always entirely enthusiastic about a US military presence on its border, it could see the benefits of having someone else take on the security burden. It even went so far as to cooperate with the United States in Afghanistan – something which stood in stark contrast to the rest of its relationship with the US.
Together with the morale and logistical collapse of the Afghan military caused by the US withdrawal from the country, the political leadership’s breakdown and ultimate flight precipitated the crisis and allowed the Taliban a swift and unopposed entry into Kabul in August 2021.

On August 9th, Kenya will hold its seventh national election since the reintroduction of multiparty competition in the early 1990s.
Kenya’s upcoming election adds to the uncertainty coming from the international landscape. Typically, elections are not a painless affair in the East African country. Violence is not necessarily part of the outcome, but the departure of President Uhuru Kenyatta, at the end of his second term and no longer eligible for re-election, makes the unfolding scenario highly unpredictable.

The Kenya general elections will be held in early August – when Kenyans will have an opportunity to elect a new President and representatives to the National Assembly, Senate, and devolved County Assemblies. These elections will be Kenya’s seventh since the introduction of multi-party politics in 1992, and the third since the promulgation of a new constitution that significantly altered the structure and architecture of the Kenyan state in 2010.
Kenya’s general elections since the onset of multiparty politics in 1992 have always elicited strong sentiment. This year’s election pitting two main contenders - former Prime Minister and veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga and the current Deputy President William Ruto promise just as many fireworks. Raila Odinga is the candidate for Azimio - a coalition of close to twenty political parties that is also supported by the sitting President Uhuru Kenyatta.
