Kenya’s president and opposition leader today unveiled an agreement to examine the hotly contested Dec. 27 election, but the sides have made no progress on a deal to share power, the AP reports. "There is real momentum," said mediator and ex-UN chief Kofi Annan. The deal also calls for the drafting of a new constitution within a year.
The committee to examine the election will include both Kenyans and outsiders and is expected to produce a report in 3 to 6 months. Some Kenyans are frustrated that the pact omitted power-sharing: "Why are they not hitting the main issue so we can have a normal life in Kenya?" asked one Kenyan, weary of unrest that has left 1,000 dead.
