Is this Kenya's definition of 'coalition'?

In the dictionary, the word is listed as follows;

co·a·li·tion (k-lshn)
n.
1. An alliance, especially a temporary one, of people, factions, parties, or nations.
2. A combination into one body; a union.

I'm sorry, but I think our Mr Orengo missed that memo.
He has just been quoted on KTN evening news talking about those people who were arrested during the skirmishes after the elections at the beginning of the year;

"If those people who STOLE the election from us are walking free, then all those who reacted to the theft of this election with violence should also be set free."

And they call this government a 'union' ???

We still hear that when people refer to George Bush stealing the Florida votes from Al Gore.

I see that coalition has been taken to new heights (or depths) with the security guards for the President and Prime Minister having their own little disputes - on the VIP podium.
Now that I would have loved to have seen!
