This article in today's Financial Times gives a summary of Kenya's story in terms of the hope that economic investment would bring. That hope is now set back till order and stability are restored. Here is the conclusion:
But there is a danger that these signs of fresh disaster will stoke belief among investors that the billions being raised in western capital to meet African demand for infrastructure and corporate growth are misplaced. Rather, the crisis in Kenya should serve as a reminder that a continent so huge, complex and beset with challenges will remain vulnerable to setbacks whenever politicians have only their own interests at heart, and so long as the majority live on barely a dollar a day.
This reminded me of God's indictment of the rich in James 5:1-6 James 5:1-6  Go to now, you rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come on you.
 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.
 Your gold and silver is corroded; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. You have heaped treasure together for the last days.
 Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, cries: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
 You have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; you have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
 You have condemned and killed the just; and he does not resist you.
American King James Version×
"Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you."
Before you turn away to the next crisis or other pressing matter in life say a prayer for the peace of Kenya and its people, and pray "thy kingdom come".
