We've been trying to find a way into the election violence in Kenya... and it was right here around the corner. Ken Okoth is a history teacher at the Potomac School outside D.C., but he grew up in the huge Nairobi slum of Kibera — in fact, he's been trying to get his family out of the country to escape the violence there.
