Kenyan leaders reach power-sharing truce

The Kenyan president and his political rival agreed on a power-sharing arrangement for the cabinet Sunday, reported the Washington Post.

President Mwai Kibaki and rival Raila Odinga agreed to share the 40-member cabinet by implementing a deal they reached in February. Odinga will be prime minister and manage the cabinet.

There has been fear that while the leader negotiated the country would slide back into violence. Since the December presidential election around 1,000 people have been killed and a million have been displaced.

Last week, demonstrations began in western Kisumu and Kibera—two of Odinga’s “strongholds,? the Washington Post said.
