Unrest in Kenya

The political climate in Kenya seems to be getting hotter every day. After the disputed presidential elections on December 27 ended in widespread violence, there has been protest from tribes across the East African country. Opposition leader Raila Odinga, a Luo, is calling for President Mwai Kibaki, a Kikuyu, to relinquish his post and accuses him of corruption. Of course Kibaki is holding on to power and fears any concessions to his adversary will cause his government’s downfall. The international community has sent in former UN Secretary General Koffi Annan to broker a deal that will hopefully bring stability back to Kenya.
