Tribalism in Kenya has been a major stumbling block to democracy as well as socio-economic development. It affects every sphere of development, from social economic, political to educational spheres. In political spheres, tribalism persists since it provides an avenue via which state goodies and favours trickle down from those in power to their tribesmen. Therefore, loyalty to tribe is given ever greater relevance than loyalty to the country.
To deal with tribalism, One Love Kenya Trust engages a diverse set of stakeholders to disrupt the tribalistic mindset and address the broader issues at stake. We also promote dialogue by bringing together a diverse array of parties from government, business, civil society and international institutions. We believe this multi-stakeholder approach to conflict resolution warrants greater adoption.
