I've certainly read the rumors of Odinga being a Muslim and about his alleged intention to impose Sharia law on Kenya upon ascending to the presidency since I've been paying attention to the turmoil in that country. Okay, Kenyans. Is this agreement authentic?
(Thanks to Atlas Shrugs, who sees something sinister in Senator Obama having met with a prominent political leader who knew his dead father. )
UPDATE: Odinga rejects a 'national unity government' in spite of the intervention of the US and of retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Tutu’s peace mission to Kenya last week was hampered by haggling by both warring parties over the conditions for negotiations.
Kibaki said his government was open to forming a coalition government with Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement only if Odinga accepted that there was a governing authority.
Odinga assured Tutu last week that he would enter into negotiations with Kibaki to form a unity government
But Tutu’s efforts to broker a deal came to nothing yesterday when Odinga rejected Kibaki’s offer to form a government of national unity.
Odinga said his party would be willing to enter into negotiations with Kibaki’s Party of National Unity only it were regarded as an equal. [SNIP]
Odinga said he should be the one offering Kibaki a role in a unity government.UPDATED: And the evil continues...a possible and predictable backlash.
He said: “It is an insult for him [Kibaki] to call us to join the government of national unity.
More than two dozen Kenyan civil organizations say police have taken to using extraordinary force, and in some cases carried out extrajudicial executions, in the face of riots sparked by anger over alleged election fraud. Police deny the accusations.The allegation is that police who are Kikuyu are taking their revenge on Odinga supporters, Luo and otherwise.
