This report notes that the violence was widespread. It erupted immediately (almost within minutes) after the announcement of the presidential election results on 30 December 2007. This immediacy was apparent in most of the theatres of violence – Nairobi, Rift Valley, Coast and Western regions. The violence eventually impacted up to 136 constituencies in six of Kenya’s eight provinces.
