The motto is...
You always deal with those that matter last! More so now that you have your post and have 5 good yrs to make the most out of it!

You mean they're still too frightened to go home?

Seinlife - so right there.

Mr Bananas - correct.

I can't seem to understand our politicians. At the risk of sounding partisan to PNU, ODM are now in the government but cannot seem to loose their militant stance. In as much as I do not support the sharing of the government "cake" like the spoils of war, this seems like the only way to patch up the two sides. Can the guys stop shouting stalemate just after one or two days of negotiations.
And somebody please tell that bearded ODM professor that however many times you cut up an orange, it still remains ONE orange (sic. Safaricom IPO).
The poor IDPs, they are slowly becoming a forgotten story and sadly some who try to resettle back to their homes are still being ejected.

Baba W&M - I think it's a case of 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. PNU is happy to share but wants an inflated cabinet of 44 ministers and ODM wants to go with 34, (as Kibaki says he appointed HALF the cabinet back in Jan and that was 17 ministers), so then? Then PNU won't give up any of the powerful seats that are already given out and ODM wants some of those power strongholds.
Ultimately though, did we really expect anything less than disagreements from the start? I think we were kidding ourselves if we thought that it was all going to be a smooth ride from the handshake in ....
