More on the struggle of power sharing in Kenya

The cabinet meeting yesterday was stormy as ministers differed over ODM's demands for a lean government and portfolio balance.

Some PNU ministers were not happy with the names ODM had submitted for cabinet postions, and stated they wanted a clean cabinet. Interesting that PNU feel they can decide what is clean and what is not. Pot and kettle come to mind.

The National Convention Executive Council has asked President Kibaki to dissolve the Cabinet.

If both leaders stick to the accord, and share power equally, then I believe we can move forward. It seems to me that the stumbling block for PNU is to share power equally. They cannot have it all, so I wait to see what happens.
