To say the government is "clashing with the tribes" is a bit simple and really false in a lot of ways. The government and politics is dominated by tribes. Their elected leaders and loyalties all fall along tribal lines.

I also want to for the record dispel the notion that all Kenyans live in these tight-knit tribes or that any of them should be called "tribesmen." To them tribe is a far more complicated word that is more like an ethnicity to us.
