Opposition leader Raila Odinga today rejected President Mwai Kibaki's offer of a unity government and demanded an international mediator, AP reports. "We want a properly negotiated settlement, not a coalition government," Odinga said, warning that his party would stage more rallies, threatening a new burst of violence after this weekend’s relative peace. Aid officials, meanwhile, warned that the continuing chaos threatens a national health crisis.
"If peace isn't restored within the next few days, disease and severe dehydration are very real threats,” said a medical charity spokesman. The United Nations was attempting to deliver 20 truckloads of supplies today to 100,000 “in dire need” in Nairobi and Eldoret city, a bastion of support for Odinga.
