Jendayi Frazer cry Ethnic cleansing in Kenya !!!

Tedla Asfaw
Jendayi Frazer, USA Ambassador,  today in Addis Ababa declared that "ethnic cleansing is underway in the Kenyan rift valley". She reached to this conclusion after she talked to people who were forced to move from their homes to be relocated to their "tribal homeland", birth place.
"Pack and go before we finish you", this is what has been going on in the rift valley and we have seen similar  movement of humanity in the Kenyan slums in Nairobi by machete waving thugs of unemployed youths and what we saw on TV screen were poor young and old terrified and running for their lives.
The question is where to go?  Do they know other homes than these slums? I am not sure these poor victims may  have any place to go because many of them  know poverty and hardship in the slums of Nairobi they call home and are not aware of any "tribal homeland" to go for their safety.
Moreover, Jendayi Frazer accused politicians who gave such instruction on radio after the end of the cheated election and this is serious charge and those who are giving such orders should face justice and the party elites who are now pressured to talk seem have no control on the crisis and if it is getting worst the Kenyan army has to rule under martial law.
A stable and peaceful Kenya's image is now replaced by waves of humanity moving from one tribal region to the other and slums residents panicking to safe their lives but not sure where to go. 
Similar disaster was averted in Addis Ababa in 2005 when the ruling TPLF/EPRDF in Ethiopia applied such such scare tactics in public by bringing the "Interhawe factor" after it lost election in Addis Ababa  and thanks to the Addis Ababans it did not materialize,however,  we did not hear Jendayi Frazer accuse the politicians in Addis Ababa then like she did in Kenya today.
