Kenyan Dispute Still Not Resolved

President Mwai Kibaki and PM Raila Odingaappear to be having significant problems resolving the composition of the cabinet.

I haven't followed this closely, quite honestly Africa is pretty much off of my radar, but to the degree that I have, it's painfully clear that Kibaki stole the election, and that he is being given a bit of a pass by outside powers, because he is seen as being "good for business."

The impetus here should be for an arrangement that respects the will of the people as it was actually expressed at the ballot box, and to the degree that Kibaki is backing away from these agreements, it should be made clear that this is not acceptable.
