Ballots of Bullets is a historical riveting fictitious account of the Kenyan 2007 post-election violence and its aftermath: loss of property, loss of life, displacement, emotional and psychological torture among others. Tabby and Fenuku meet at the airport while fleeing. Upon interaction, they learn that they have been devoured by the same monster: violence. Fenuku’s
father, Mr. Obuu, the electoral ICT manager is murdered in cold blood for his firm stand of ensuring to deliver valid election results which are to be transmitted electronically while Tabby’s mother and siblings are torched from their house while Papa is away on a business trip. The heinous act of torching them is occasioned by the ethnically divided politics, for Papa was supporting a presidential candidate who was not popular in his region because of his tribe.
