Breakthrough perhaps?

I have this from Reuters;

Kenya parties see progress but no final deal

- Negotiators for Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga said on Friday talks to resolve their dispute over President Mwai Kibaki's re-election had moved forward but not reached a final deal."I don't think it's really going to be a breakthrough, but rather an agreement of principles," a senior government official told Reuters.An opposition leader, William Ruto, said: "There is positive news, but no final solution yet."Ruto denied earlier media speculation the two sides had agreed to share power in a government of national unity, saying: "I don't think so. That is not the case."Sources on both sides said they would not divulge details of the talks' progress, but that mediator and former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan would announce more at a news conference.

And then this from our Kenyan Nation Media

ANNAN MEETS Kibaki and Raila, tells Press 'we have reached far on the political issues but wait for details early next week'.

So what's all that about then? Leave us panting why don't you, and take the weekend off AGAIN !

Argh !
