Demonstrating or Looting?

There were riots in Kisumu today, the voters were apparently demonstrating (as is their right) against the Electoral Commission's inexplicable delay in announcing the results of the presidential election. But setting their town on fire was absolutely dismaying to me. Really, making away with generators and microwaves is not a great way to show that you're demonstrating for your fundamental rights.

I have been disappointed by my countrymen on many levels today, and I am sure the disappointment will continue.
