Kenya in Turmoil
Multiethnic Nakuru is under curfew with Scores dead; Annan concludes that the situation in the Refugee camps in Rift Valley is dire. He demands that the Govt must protect the people, resettle and compensate the displaced; he observes that the elctoral crisis has evolved into fights to settle scores over historical injustices, land issues and economic marginalizationt. He warns that Odinga and Kibaki must face hard choices. ODM and Anna not happy about Kibaki's duly-elcted, recent remark.
Meanwhile Retired Cleric, Bishop Gitari decries the fact that the Church is partisan, and has "lost its Prophetic Voice."
My take is that Kenya has no Native Angel of Peace. Let us pray that HE Annan's efforts bear fruit.
