Berlin Finally Apologizes To Binyavanga After Attack by Racist Taxi Driver

Berlin authorities have apologized to popular Kenyan writer Binyavanga Wainaina, after he was attacked by a racist cab driver.

Binyavanga who is recovering from a stroke, was reportedly beaten like a dog by his attacker.

“The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program has noted with deep consternation, that its current guest, Kenyan writer Binyavanga Wainaina, has been beaten by a taxi driver in Berlin. We strongly condemn this assault and feel ashamed that such a violent act could occur in our country. The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program stands for a culture of welcoming, for tolerance, international artistic dialogue and the absence of difference. We are all strangers encountering different cultures and bringing these together. This is the only way that a true dialogue can take place. The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program is in close contact with Binyavanga Wainaina and stands in this situation firmly by his side," authorities apologized.
