Deal or no deal in Kenya, swings and roundabouts

Lean, bloated or clean cabinet.

What is going on, when on Thursday both parties released different lists of how the ministries would be shared out?

The government needs to take on board that part of the agreement is that everything needs to be shared 50/50, as that was part of the peace agreement. It seems that this government is incapable of doing that, and at this stage I feel that we are back to square one. We don't seem to be making any progress. Kenyans continue to be kept on edge waiting for a decision to be made.

Raila Odinga and Kibaki are still meeting to finalise the cabinet.

Kibaki is supposed to leave for India tomorrow, will we make any progress today?

I wonder how this government will be run, when the cabinet is announced, given how challenging it has been for both sides to come to any agreement.
