Part 2 of a Beyond90Seconds.com special series, “Crisis in Kenya.” Journalist Mark Horner continues his look at the concern for Kenya and its people through the eyes of an Arizona woman named Louise Furman.
Part 2 begins with the question, “Where’s Jack?” Jack is the nickname for Furman’s Kenyan friend, Faustin Omondi. Omondi is also the person who helps distribute Furman’s donations to Kenyans in need. But she’s had difficulty reaching him following Kenya’s December 27, 2007 presidential election and the violence that has followed. She’s left to wonder if “Jack” is even alive.
Part 2 also vividly explains the negative impact on Lake Victoria caused by one of the fastest-growing plants known, the water hyacinth.
Horner shows the choking effect of the hyacinth on the lake, and makes an analogy to the violence that is gripping Kenya.
