PNU reject US pressure over power sharing

The Kenya government issued a veiled threat to the US not to put a gun to anyone's head.

This was in response to George Bush's warning that Kenya needs to agree to a power sharing arrangement with the opposition.

Kilonzo's party faces a credibility test, is it in a postion to play referee between the main combatants, when Kilonzo is in bed with PNU.

I am waiting to see what deal will be made this week.

Samuel Kivuitu may face the music.

Twenty civil societies have given the Attorney General, Amos Wako a two-week ultimatum to prosecute Electoral Commission of Kenya Chairman, Mr Samuel Kivuitu.

Under the umbrella, Kenyans for Peace with Truth and Justice Initiative, the civil societies also want the 21 commissioners and another 21 senior staff to answer criminal charges for their conspiracy in the bungled presidential election.
A charge sheet prepared by the civil societies, accuses ECK of 112 offences including forgery, conspiracy to commit a felony, and making false documents.
The NGO’s spokesperson, Mr Haroun Ndubi led colleagues in presenting a petition to the AG’s office, on Friday.

He said the people named in the petition allegedly committed a series of criminal offences.
They said after the two-week ultimatum, they would initiate private prosecution against those who not only bungled the elections, but also those who incited people to violence.

Quotes from Prosecute Kivuitu, Wako told .

Samuel Kivuitu needs to take responsibility for his actions.

Is the attention that the West is giving Kenya to protect democracy?
