Two indicted war criminals are among the leading contenders for president and vice-president as Kenya’s voters go to the polls Monday. Their leading competitor currently serves as Prime Minister in a coalition government that is widely regarded as corrupt.



The choices before 20 million or so Kenyan voters are therefore hardly what they might be in one of Africa’s most pivotal countries. But that the electoral possibilities are so limited testifies to a major problem consuming much of today’s Africa: a terrible shortage of responsible, committed, honest leadership.
