Kenya gets new cabinet — at last

Go to Reuters original
It took six weeks of intense negotiation to end Kenya’s post-election mayhem and another six weeks of haggling over a new power-sharing cabinet. The 41-member cabinet has now been sworn in, with President Mwai Kibaki sharing portfolios with opposition leader Raila Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement. Kibaki’s disputed re-election after Kenya’s Dec. 27 poll triggered the country’s worst post-independence crisis that killed more than 1,200 people and uprooted more than 300,000.
